"These oatcakes taste great. I used butter instead of shortening - it's healthier and tastier. Try pulsing the oats in a food processor a few times to break them into smaller pieces - makes it easier to cut them out with a cutter. Careful not to over-bake, 15 minutes is about right. I left my second pan in too long, and the cakes had a slightly bitter aftertaste. My batch yielded 20 cakes."

I loved them!! I used unsalted butter instead of shortening. Easy to make and taists great. Makes a great cracker for cheese or butter. Thanks :) Blair

I've been looking for the traditional oat cake recipe. This one seemed simple enough to follow. Took the cookies out of the oven just now. Burnt my lips, but could not resist. They taste great, however turned out a bit dry. Maybe a drop of oil would be good? Need to try next time.
