ANZAC cookies

Postby Sid Delicious » Sun Jun 08, 2014 7:39 am

This recipe comes from the trenches of World War 1. The biscuits supplied to Australian and NewZealand troops to eat with Bully Beef were so hard as to be inedible. So they crushed them up, mixed them with oats and baked them into something better. I've been eating a lot of them lately. Being quite plain you can eat a lot of them without feeling sick. They are quite good if you are on a long walk/hike, especially if you are walking for several days in remote places as they supply you with low-GI energy. They will survive intact in you pack, and you can eat them when you are walking - no need to stop to eat if the weather turns crap and you are on exposed terrain.

.5 cup white flour
.3 cup sugar
.6 cup dessicated coconut
.75 cup rolled oats
50g margarine
1 tablespoon Golden Syrup (a kind of liquid sugar product that helps bind them together)
.2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons boiling water

Mix together flour, sugar, coconut and rolled oats. Melt margarine and golden syrup. Dissolve baking soda in the boiling water and add to melted margarine and golden syrup. Stir margarine mixture into the dry ingredients. Place level tablespoons of mixture onto cold greased baking trays. Bake at 180 degrees celcius for about 15 minutes or until golden. Makes about 20.
