Jemima's Oatcakes (a very old recipe)

2 cups Scottish oatmeal, uncooked(if using American oatmeal, run it through the blender)
3/4 to 1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 cup water

Preheat oven 350 degrees

Mix 1 1/2 cups oatmeal with 3/4 cup of flour, then add the salt. Make a well in the center, pour in the oil and water, and form the mix into a dough.
If the dough is too wet, add more flour.

On a board with the remaining 1/2 cup oatmeal, knead the dough and roll it out to a thickness of 1/4 to 1/8 inch. Cut the dough into 4 quarters and
bake the quarters on an ungreased cookie sheet for 35 minutes. The cakes should be dry on the outside and somewhat moist in the middle.

Serves: 6-8 people.
