Crunchy Oat Biscuits

As far as I'm concerned there is a "certain" way that a good biscuit should be. Crunchy on the outside, chewy in the middle. I've tried countless recipes to try and acheive this biscuit-perfection and this is one of my (and my children's) favourites;

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup plain flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup rice bubbles
1/2 cup dessicated coconut

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Combine flour, bicarb, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Add to butter & sugar mixture and mix well. Stir in oats, rice bubbles and coconut.
   Shape into balls and place on a biscuit tray 5 cm apart. Bake at 180C for 10-12 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
