Next up in my recipes for goodies for the Victory Tea - Party is ANZAC Biscuits.
These sweet biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) which was established in WWII.
ANZAC biscuits were sent by mothers and wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation.
They are very yummy, easy to make and are also a popular commercially made biscuit. My boys say that my ones are heaps better than the bought ones.
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup desicated coconut
small pinch of salt
115g butter or margarine (I use margarine)
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon boiling water.
Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees C (320 degrees F).
Mix all dry ingredients (but not the baking soda) in a bowl.
Melt butter and golden syrup, then add the baking soda dissolved in the boiling water.
Mix the wet ingredients into the dry.
Spoon onto greased oven tray and bake for 15 minutes.
Cool a little on the tray then put on cooling rack.
Store in an air-tight container.
