ANZAC stands for Australian, New Zealand Army Corps... These were invented when there was a shortage of everything during the war and families wanted to send things to their boys fighting in WW1. They are tastey and can last along time... but they tend to get eaten before they go stale. We always make these in rememberance on Anzac Day, 25th April... Hope you like them

    plain flour

How to Make Anzac Biscuits (cookies)

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to moderate 180C. Line cookie tray with baking paper.
  2. Sift flour and sugar into a large mixing bowl. Add oats and coconut; make a well in the centre.
  3. Combine butter and golden syrup in a small heavy based pot. Stir over low heat until butter has melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat. Dissolve soda in water; add immediately to butter mixture and stir until foamy (make sure it is really frothy as this is a key step). Add to dry ingredients and stir until well combined. (if you are substituting honey or treacle the colouring and flavour may change slightly but still tastes wonderful)
  4. Take spoon fulls of the mixture and pop onto the lined cookie sheet. Leave then heaped up as they will flatten out in the oven. For chewy biscuits bake for 25 to 30 mins. For Crunchy biscuits leave in for another 5 or so mins. They need to cook on the tray as they are fragile when first removed from oven. They should be a darkish golden brown and smell wonderful. You can drizzle chocolate over them if you wish
