Another plaque a recipe & a snow pic

I made another little plaque for Charlie,
will update it every year with his age and
things he likes.I made it an A4 size,  then
printed various words in different fonts &
got a cheap frame and then painted it silver.
Also some yummy oat biscuits I can't stop
making now too. They are really nice &
chewy, although they seem to turn out
differently every time I make them now lol.
Still thought I would share the recipe as
they ARE scrummy !
Here is a pic of the snow we got the other
day, taken in our local churchyard , we got
about 4".Hope you like :O)

                                                           Oat biscuits

    ( Makes 24)

150 g Porridge oats
150 g SR Flour
150 g Caster sugar
150 g Butter
2 tbsp Golden syrup
2 tbs milk

Heat butter, syrup & milk in a saucepan until melted.
Pour into bowl containing the oats etc. & mix. Roll
heaped tsp into balls onto a tray lined with baking
paper. Space well apart. Bake at 180 C or 160 C for
fan ovens for 10- 12 mins. They should look just golden
brown so keep checking them. Leave on tray to cool for
5 mins.,( that hardens them up a bit) then transfer to rack.
ps. Just to add these should be flat, biscuity and and
chewy , if they turn out too 'cake' like use more syrup,
that's the key I have found now . Just made more today
and they are so yummy hard to stop myself eating them
as soon as they come out of the oven lol.

Great plaque and a fab idea for keepsakes as Charlie grows up and look at the snow you have!! We got zilch here although 20 miles down the road there was about 4 inches of the stuff!
