Anzac Biccies

25th April is Anzac Day, when people in Australia and New Zealand commemorate the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who fought at Gallipoli - as well as more generally acting as a remembrance day for members of the armed forces.

I myself celebrate something else on 25th April - the Anzac biscuit.

The recipe below comes courtesy of Esther's Granny.


Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees.

2 cups flour
1 3/4 cups coconut
1 3/4 cups oats
2 cups sugar

225g butter
2tbsp honey or golden syrup
1tsp baking soda
4tbsp water

Mix together the dry ingredients.  In a small saucepan, melt the butter and honey or syrup and add the baking soda and water.

Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry.  Put in a baking tin and bake for about 12 minutes until golden brown.

The biscuits should be chewy rather than crisp ... and very extremely delicious.


Edited to say: following a batch of charred biscuits, I lowered the heat and shortened the cooking time & amended the original post accordingly.  Sorry!
