Anzac Biscuits

The other day, Chanin asked me to make Anzac biscuits (cookies for those of you in the US). Well, I made them today and thought I'd put it here because they are the quintessential Australian biscuit.

Here's the Wiki page for them, so you'll know the history of these great tasting biscuits:


125g (4oz or 1 stick) butter
1 tbsp golden syrup (If you can't get golden syrup, use light Karo syrup)
2 tbsp boiling water
1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda (baking soda)
1 cup oats
3/4 cup desiccated coconut (macaroon or unsweetened coconut in the US)
1 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar

Pre-heat your oven to 300F (150C)

In a bowl, mix oats, coconut, flour and sugar.

Melt butter and golden syrup over a low heat. Add boiling water mixed with bicarbonate soda.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.

Drop teaspoonfuls of the mixture on to a greased or baking paper lined baking tray, leaving enough room for spreading and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Once done, cool on the tray for a couple of minutes, then move to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

Store them in an airtight container.

These biscuits are great with coffee!

Hope everyone has a great Christmas!!
