Anzac Biscuits are an Australia and New Zealand tradition, that were created during war to make use of cheap and readily available ingredients. Well in my book those ingredients make one of the tastiest biscuits in the cookie jar!
So its getting lighter, brighter and most importantly warmer! we are heading towards BBQ season yay. I have a recipe for you which is super simple and perfect bbq pudding, Anzac Cookie Ice-cream Sandwich. I promise they will be a hit!
75g Plain Flour
95g Soft Brown Sugar
50g Porridge Oats
3 tbsp Desccated Coconut
1Tbsp Golden Syrup
12 Tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
Plus your favourite ice- cream to fill the cookies with. I have used vanilla as was unable to get my hands of peanut butter!
Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees and line two baking trays
In a bowl combine the oats, coconut, flour and sugar
Melt the butter gently in a pan, once melted add the syrup, water and lastly the bicarbonate of soda
Next add the liquid to the dry ingredients and combine.
Roll the mixture in to ten even balls, a little smaller than a golf ball
Space the balls on the two baking trays allowing plenty of room to spread and bake for 8-10 mins or until golden and crisp.
The trick is to make sure the cookies are completely cooled before you use them or you will have a soggy mess!
