Anzac Biscuits

Anzac Biscuits myfavouritepastime.comI made these biscuits several months ago. The main ingredients are large oat flakes, shredded coconut, flour, butter and golden syrup. Use good quality golden syrup. Once, I sat down to eat them, I couldn’t stop. I remember eating them continuously until they got finished. They are very addictive. I hope you’re enjoying fall, with all those beautiful leaves falling, and sometimes annoying, because you know you have to rake them, pretty soon. Enjoy the week!

Points to Note

  1. Please note that oven temperatures are given as a guideline only. You may need to add or reduce the suggested temperature depending on your oven
  2. I baked the biscuits at 350ºF (180ºC) for 9 minutes in a convection oven.
  3. For cup measures: spoon the flour into the cup, heaping it up over the top, then slide a knife across the top to level off the extra. Be careful not to shake or tap the cup to settle down the flour or you will have more than you need.
