Cranberry & White Chocolate ANZAC Biscuits

Julie Dicello


ANZAC Biscuits are an Australian and New Zealand biscuit that was sent to our service men during the 2nd world war.
They are still an Aussie favourite but this is a version with a twist.

How to Make Cranberry & White Chocolate ANZAC Biscuits

  2. Combine flour, oats,sugar, coconut, cranberries and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. Stir butter, honey and water in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter melts and mixture is smooth.
  4. Stir in baking soda. Add mixture to the oat mix and stir well until combined.
  5. Roll a tablespoon mixture into balls. (play with this amount to get size you want. I make large ones. about 2 inch balls or more)place about 1 inch or so apart on baking tray than flatted out to 1/2 inch thick with a fork.
  6. Bake, swapping trays (upper and lower) shelves half way through. cooking for about 15 minutes until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes than transfer onto wire rack to cool completely.
