Personal notes/温馨小贴士:
– i found the taste “just nice” for the family (may consider cutting the sugar down to 35g next time in fact)
甜度刚好。下次会考虑将糖份减至 35克
– i did not have salted butter and used unsalted butter with 1/8 tsp of fleur de sel instead. I used Bob Red Mill’s Stone Ground Whole Wheat flour and grounded 100g of spelt oats
家里木有有盐黄油。用了无盐黄油,另加 1/8小匙海盐。我用了 Bob Red Mill’s 牌子的斯佩尔特小麦面粉,并磨碎了 100克斯佩尔特燕麦- after grinding the spelt oats, i dumped all the dry ingredients into the food processor and grind everything together again

– we love thick cookies, so my cookies are 0.6cm thick and 5.6cm in diameter. I made 17 cookies in total
我们喜欢有厚度的曲奇,所以我家的饼干厚度为 0.6厘米,直径为 5.6厘米。一共做了 17片饼干

 The portion is not big, so it won’t take too long to finish  (^~^)… but i’m not too worried about this because i can use it as cheesecake base if no one eats them anyway… woot (-^〇^-)

    I had no idea we can make our own digestives! These are so much healthier than the store bought ones. Thanks for sharing.
