Anzac biscuits

More baking! This time it's my mum's never fail recipe and I've just proved this to be the case. They're yummy and the kids will be pleased to have one each after pre school.

Anzac biscuits

An Anzac biscuit is a sweet biscuit popular in Australia and New Zealand, made using rolled oats, flour, desiccated coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, baking soda and boiling water. Anzac biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I. It has been claimed the biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation. 

My mum found the recipe in the Sunday Times Magazine and it's Olivia Tully's.

1 cup flour
1 cup castor sugar
1 cup coconut
2cups rolled oats
125g butter
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp boiling water

Mix flour, sugar, coconut and oats and make a well in the centre.

Melt butter and golden syrup together, dissolve baking soda in water.

Combine all, roll into balls and press onto greased baking trays.

Bake at 180 C for 15 minutes.

Space them evenly as they spread a bit- reduce the temperature to 170 C  in a fan oven, they may cook before 15 minutes too so you need to watch that they don't burn.
