      Title: Pictou county oatcakes
 Categories: Breads, Canadian, Nova scotia, Scottish
      Yield: 1 servings
 
      2 c  Oatmeal
      1 c  Flour
      1 c  Brown sugar
      1 ts -Salt
    3/4 c  Shortening
    1/4 ts Baking soda
    1/4 c  -boiling water
 
  Combine dry ingredients and cut in shortening. Dissolve baking soda
  in the boiling water and add, continuing to mix with a knife. Mold
  with the hands and shape into a long wedge. Slice off and bake in a
  400F oven for 10 minutes. This recipe comes from the county where the
  Scots first landed in Canada (and where my dad was born.) To quote
  the author, "Our Scottish ancestors used "real" oatmeal when they
  made their favorite oatcakes. However sugar did creep in, as
  indicated by this 75 year old recipe. (The book was published in 1971
  so the recipe would be form the year 1894.)
