Date Biscuits

Tea for two...
...or three or four or five...
My precious in laws came for tea and I whipped up a batch of these yummy biscuits...
The weather is still nice and cold, so we needed some crunchy, oaty, fruity type biscuits...

 So you will need - 

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp bicarb of soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter - softened
3 eggs
1/2 cup white sugar (I never had so just used all brown!)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups oats
1 cup dates
1/2 cup walnuts (I never had any!)

Beat the butter and sugar together, add the eggs and vanilla, Beat until light and fluffy.
Sieve in the dry ingredients.
Mix well - Add the oats.
Add the chopped dates and walnuts if using.

Roll into small balls and flatten slightly - place on a greased baking sheet 
and bake for about 8 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius until golden brown.

Enjoy with some tea and special family!
