What would you like to do?
ANZAC biscuits
* 1 cup whole wheat flour
* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup desiccated coconut
* 1 cup rolled oats
* 1/2 cup butter (i.e. one whole stick of butter)
* 2 tbs honey or golden syrup
* 1 tsp bicarb soda
* 1 tbs boiling water
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine the flour, sugar, coconut and oats and mix well. Melt the
butter in a saucepan over low heat, then add the honey/golden syrup.
In a cup, add the boiling water to the bicarb soda, then add the
mixture to the saucepan.
Pour the saucepan into the dry mixture, and mix it up with your hands.
You should be able to form fairly smooth round balls. Flatten them out
between your palms. If the biscuits are breaking up or not holding
their shape well, add another tbs of boiled water to the mixture to
make it a bit more sticky.
Put all the biscuits on a tray and stick it in the preheated oven. 15
minutes should get you biscuits that are still a bit chewy. 20 minutes
and they will start to be a bit harder.
Remove them from the tray and put them on a wire rack to cool
(otherwise they keep cooking). They stay pretty soft when they're hot,
but once they cool off they get harder.
Some other ingredients we like to throw in from time to time include
(not all at once :): chopped cashews, corn flakes, or raisins.
