Hobnobs are fantastically delicious cookies! The recipe I found states that it's a pretty accurate 'copycat' version of the classic British biscuit. Here's the recipe:

240g self-raising flour (about 2 cups)
240g sugar (1 1/2 cups to 1 1/2 cups)
240g জাউ oats (about 3 cups) -- I used Quaker oatmeal

Artist: Keith Harkin
Song: The Island

They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat
They're প্রদর্শিত হচ্ছে pictures on the television
Women and children dying in the street
And we're still at it in our own place
Still trying to reach the future through the past
Still trying to carve tomorrow from a tombstone

But hey, don't listen to me
This wasn't meant to be no sad song
We've heard too much of that before
Right now I only want to be with you
Till the mornin' dew comes fallin'

And I want to take আপনি to the island
Trace your footprints in the sand
And in the evening when the sun...

The Homes Of Donegal
(Sean Mc Bride/ arranged Paul Brady)

I've just dropped in to see আপনি all
I'll only stay awhile
I want to hear how you're getting on
I want to hear আপনি smile
I'm happy to be back again
And greet আপনি big and small
For there's no place on earth just like
The homes of Donegal

I long to see your smiling children
Standing দ্বারা the door
The kettle boiling on the hearth
As I walk up the floor
And then to see a welcome free
For travellers one and all
For your hearts are like your mountains
In the homes of Donegal

I'd like to stay along with আপনি
And while away the night
With fairy...
