They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
MACADAMIA ANZAC BISCUITS
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup raw caster sugar
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup Australian macadamia nuts, chopped
4-5 tablespoons golden syrup
135g unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 tablespoon boiling water
Preheat oven to 150 or 160 degrees C. Combine the oats, flour, sugar, coconut and macadamias in a bowl. Set aside. In a small saucepan melt the combined golden syrup and butter. Mix the bicarbonate of soda and boiling water, add to the melted syrup and butter and stir into the dry ingredients. Drop rounded neat soup spoonfuls of mixture onto lined baking trays and flatten down carefully, using your fingertips. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool and store in airtight containers.
What's been on your ANZAC Day agenda, dear readers? And dear readers overseas, have you ever baked this iconic biscuit?
