ANZAC Biscuits

by

I used the ANZAC Biscuit recipe from the Wiki Cookbook – ANZAC Biscuits, however if you wish to do the more traditional method it is available from The Australian War Memorial Recipe for ANZAC Biscuits

  • 1 cup white or brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons golden syrup (cane syrup) or honey

All the dry ingredients

I melted the butter and golden syrup in the microwave. The recipe wanted you to do it in a saucepan but I think you could do it either way.

Method

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl, and melt the syrup and butter in a saucepan. Add the baking soda and water to the syrup mix.
  2. Mix the wet and dry ingredients, adding water if necessary.
  3. Separate and roll the mixture into small balls, and flatten them on oven trays.
  4. Bake at 150°C (300°F) for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.

The finished biscuits are quite chewy and crisp, and have a long shelf-life.

Kids helped me make this batch. All ready to go in the oven.

All cooked and ready to eat. They were very yummy! We did not have a huge dinner due to the ANZAC biscuit afternoon tea.

Did you make ANZAC Biscuits? Were they yummy? Did you make heaps? I have a huge box of them and I think they will be treats in lunches for weeks to come.
