To the brave men and women who fought so that we could have a free nation and the many who never again stepped back through the door to their loved ones. The ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Lest we forget.Anzac day, a perfect day to enjoy some home cooked Anzac Biscuits.
125 grams butter, chopped
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
2 tablespoons boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar or raw sugar (I used raw sugar)
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
Preheat oven to 180°C and prepare 2 large baking trays with parchment paper.
Stir butter and syrup in a medium saucepan over low heat until smooth. Stir in combined soda and the water and as soon as the mixture bubbles, turn off the heat and set aside.
Add the sugar, flour, oats and coconut into a large mixing bowl. Add in the syrup mixture and stir well with a spoon until combined.
Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls; place 5cm apart the trays then flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden.
If the biscuits don’t spread as much as you’d like, flatten them as soon as they come out of the oven with the back of your measuring cup.
