ANZAC Cookies

ANZAC Biscuits
These biscuits were originally sent to the Australia/New Zealand Army Corps in WW1 (the first war to end all wars before George Dubya Bush came along)

Whatjaneed:
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sifted plain flour
1 cup of sugar
¾ cup coconut
125g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon of boiling water

Bung into a bowl the oats, flour, sugar and coconut.



In a saucepan, melt the butter and golden syrup.



Mix the soda with the boiling water and pour into the butter mix. It will fizz when added so don’t panic!



Add this to the dry ingredients and mix well with a spoon.



Put a teaspoonful of the mixture onto a well greased tray and allow for spreading.

Cook at 150c for about 20 minutes.



They will be soggy when they first come out but harden as they cool. That’s why they were sent to the soldiers on the front line in Turkey. When hard they lasted the journey from Australia to Turkey 8-) and so endeth the history lesson for today…8-)

These can probably be frozen but I have never seen them last that long in the biccy barrel.

Love, peace and mung beans
