rolled oats ragged robins

December 8, 2011

another strange vintage american recipe – this one from a 1918 text “Foods that Will Win the War and How to Cook Them

they appear to be oat biscuits.

ever read the invisibles? ragged robin is a pretty compelling character. never knew she was named after a kind of biscuit.

•1 1/2 cups rolled oats
•1 cup bread flour
•1 1/3 teaspoons salt
•1 1/3 cups milk
•2 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
•4 tablespoons fat
•1 1/4 teaspoons soda


Sift dry ingredients. Cut in the fat. Add liquid and drop by spoonfuls on greased baking sheet. Bake in hot oven 12 to 15 minutes. These may be rolled and cut same as baking powder biscuits. (If uncooked rolled oats are used, allow to stand in the milk for 30 minutes before making recipe.)
