Today we get to stop and remember all those brave souls that have fought for the freedom of our nation over the years, a day we call ANZAC Day (ANZAC stands for Australia & New Zealand Army Corps).

So yesterday I got the girls to make ANZAC biscuits.  They're a very classic Kiwi biscuit (cookie for those Americans/Canadians).  If you've never made them before, I recommend giving it a go!  It's one of my favourite biscuits (but only the homemade variety - I find bought ones too crunchy for my liking!)

ANZAC Biscuits

Picture borrowed from Google - the girls' ones didn't last for a photo!

1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup desiccated coconut
3/4 cup rolled oats
50g butter
1 Tbls golden syrup
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 Tbls boiling water

1. Mix together the flour, sugar, coconut and oats.
2. Melt the butter and golden syrup.
3. Dissolve the baking soda in the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup.
4. Stir butter mixture into the dry ingredients.
5. Place level tablespoons of mixture onto greased baking tray (or shape into balls and flatten with your palm).
6. Bake at 180 C for about 15mins or until golden.
Makes 20 (if you make them tiny - ours were a decent size and we got about 12!)

There are lots of variations on this recipe with nuts, raisins or chocolate chips added, but I just like it standard!


Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
