  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Gently melt the butter. Combine the oats, spelt flour, salt, baking powder, sugar and seeds in a bowl. Pour in the melted butter and stir to combine, coating all of the oats. Add up to 80ml boiling water, a little at a time, until you have a dough that holds together.

  2. Lightly dust a work surface with flour and turn out the dough, rolling out to 0.5cm thickness. Using a 5cm round cutter, cut out your biscuits and place on a lined baking tray. Bake for 20-25 mins until crisp and golden, then remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack. Can be made one day ahead and kept in an airtight container. To serve, spread with butter and top with stilton and a dollop of damson jam.

These are absolutely gorgeous with Stilton and had some home made plum jam, will defo make them again. I will only put half teaspoon of salt in next time though. A very impressive end to a dinner party - if I ever throw one again!
