24 bite-size mini Cape Breton Oat Cake Cookies; what are Cape Breton Oatcakes?
The original recipe for oatcakes likely arrived with Scottish settlers in Cape Breton. Fine oatmeal ground in the pioneer's gristmills, a little fat worked with the fingertips, and perhaps a touch of sugar, made a crispy baked "cake" to eat with cheese or jam.

Over the years, Cape Bretoner's (and eventually all cooks across Canada) used rolled oats and more sugar to make the cookie-like oatcake of today. So sit back and dig into this traditional sweet snack with a good cup of hot tea. Delicious!

Ingredients: Rolled Oats, Flour, Sugar, Baking Soda, Salt, Butter, Water.
