Ann Creber’s Anzac Biscuits

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda
  • 2 tablespoon boiling water

Mix together oats, flour, sugar, coconut. In a small saucepan, melt together butter and syrup. Add to dry ingredients.

Place tablespoons of mixture onto greased trays, allowing room for spreading. Cook in slow oven approximately 30 minutes. For a crisper biscuit, lightly press down biscuits halfway through cooking time. Allow to cool slightly before carefully removing with a spatula. Cool on wire rack and store in airtight container.

Makes about 24.
