Anzac Biscuits

A friend of mine gave me this recipe for Anzac biscuits. I had never heard of them and she explained that Anzac stands for Australia, New Zealand, Army cookies. They are very nutritious and don't contain eggs so they last awhile, but actually they don't because they are delicious and you can't stop eating them.

They are ideal for children's lunch boxes or picnics. Hope you like them too!



ANZAC Biscuits

4oz or 115 g  coconut
8oz or 230g walnuts
6oz or 180g oats
8oz or 230g caster sugar
8oz or 230g plain flour
8oz or 230g butter
2 tablespoons syrup
2 teaspoons bicarbonate soda
4 tablespoons boiling water

Mix all the dry ingredients together.
Melt the butter and syrup and add to the dry mix.
Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in the boiling water and add to the mix, stir well.
Shape the mixture into balls the size of a small plum and flatten slightly. You should be able to make about 20.
Cook in the oven at 130 for 20 minutes.

Everything ready
