   Preheat oven to 450 F.  Combine flour, oats, butter,
   sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl.  Rub
   mixture against side of bowl with wooden spoon until
   butter is completely blended in. Slowly stir in enough
   milk to make stiff dough.  Turn out onto lightly
   floured surface and knead just until dough holds
   together. Reflour surface lightly. Roll dough out 1/3
   inch thick.  Cut into 2 1/2-inch rounds.  Gather
   scraps together. Reroll and cut additional bannocks.
   Arrange on ungreased baking sheet, spacing 1 inch
   apart.  Bake until light brown, 12 to 15 minutes.
   Serve hot or cool on racks.
