  • Summary

    These tender and flaky spelt cookies walk the line between sweet and savory. [Photograph: Jennifer Latham] This "digestive" biscuit, made from spelt, oats, and dark muscovado sugar, is a great all-purpose treat that walks the fine line between savory and sweet: it could just as easily be served with jam, dipped in chocolate, or set on a plate of cheese. Why this recipe works: Spelt's specific gluten composition creates a more tender, flaky cookie than flour from wheat would. Dark muscovado sugar adds a deep molasses-y flavor (substituting light muscovado sugar just doesn't work as well).Note: Whole spelt flour is available at well-stocked supermarkets from companies like Bob's Red Mill and King Arthur Flour.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 cups whole spelt flour, plus more for dusting (see note above)
    • 1 3/4 cups whole rolled oats
    • 1 stick plus 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, diced or grated
    • 1/2 teaspooon baking soda
    • 1/3 cup packed dark brown muscovado sugar
    • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
    • 3 tablespoons whole milk
