ANZAC cookie’s are a very simple affair, fast and easy to make but that small effort results in a really tasty cookie. Traditionally linked to the Australia and New Zealand Corps (ANZAC) they are often made as a fundraising item to raise money for armed services organisations. It turns out I am a bit late as ANZAC day was back in april but tasty treats shouldn’t be limited to just one day. You can buy these in the supermarket and they are good but they are a harder cookie compared to the home made version which is chewier. I had been meaning to make these for a long time but other things kept demanding my attention so it took me being at a loose end on recent weekend, realising I had everything in the kitchen to finally make them.
85g Porridge Oats
85g Desiccated Coconut
100g Plain Flour
100g Caster Sugar
1 Tblsp Golden Syrup
1 Tsp Baking Soda
Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Mix the oats, coconut, flour, and sugar in a bowl. Melt the butter in a small pan add the golden syrup. Add the Baking Soda to 2 Tblsp of boiling water and mix this into the butter mixture.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the butter mixture and mix this together to incorporate.
Shape the dough into tablespoon size cookies and bake on buttered cookie sheets for 8-10 mins until golden. cool on baking racks.
