Close to McVitie's Digestive Biscuits
"Traditional British biscuits, digestives can also be served buttered or with cheese. For a sweeter biscuit, brush one side with melted semisweet chocolate after baking.""Pretty good copy. Next time I will use one less tbsp brown sugar and one more tbsp butter. It's difficult to roll out the dough evenly thin enough but the results were yummy anyway." -

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
2. In a large bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Mix in the oatmeal. Cream together the butter and the sugar and add to mixture. Stir in the milk until mixture forms a thick paste.
3. Knead dough on a floured surface until smooth. Roll out dough to approximately 1/8" thickness. Cut into rounds with cookie cutter about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Transfer to cookie sheets and prick with a fork.
4. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden. Let cool on wire rack. Store in an airtight tin.
This comes close to McVittie's. Choose a whole wheat pastry flour to avoid the sometimes bitter taste of regular whole wheat flour.
