Anzac Biscuits

Recipe submitted by Wifey on November 13th, 2008

ANZAC biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I. The biscuit appears to be a variation of Scottish oat cakes, possibly via the Scottish-influenced city of Dunedin, New Zealand. The ingredients do not spoil easily so the biscuits kept well during naval transportation to loved ones who were fighting abroad. They are delicious and easy to make. This was an old recipe from my mother.

Prep time:   20 minutes
Cook time:   12 minutes
Servings:   2 dozen plus biscuits

120g butter
2 dessertspoons Golden Syrup
1 egg beaten
1 cup Dried Coconut
1 cup Rolled Oats

1. Melt butter and golden syrup in pot, low heat and until runny (don't over heat)

3. Add wet to dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
4. Scoop out small handfuls of mixture, roll into balls, place on greased try then flatten
5. Bake at 180°C for approximately 12-15 minutes until golden brown
