ANZAC Biscuits

ANZAC Biscuits
ANZAC biscuits are very easy to make. They are a traditional biscuit made for soldiers that served in the World Wars and sent by mothers and wives to their men overseas. ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corps. The biscuits were made with ingredients that lasted the long distance for the travel to the soldiers and full of energy for them too.

This recipe is the basic recipe from New Zealand cook book Edmonds.

100 grams butter                               3/4 cup rolled oats
1 tablespoon of golden syrup            3/4 cup plain baking flour
1/2 cup sugar                                     1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 coconut                                        1 tablespoon hot water

Melt butter and syrup together in a large saucepan. Cool. Mix sugar, coconut, rolled oats and flour together. Stir into the saucepan. Dissolve soda in water and mix in. Place rounded teaspoonfuls on a greased over tray. (I swash my down a bit). Bake at 180 deg c for 15 minutes, or until golden. Let cool and then transfer to a rack.
