Anzac Biscuits II (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Yield: About 3 dozen cookies

1 cup plain flour, sifted
1 cup rolled oats, uncooked
1 cup coconut, desiccated
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp. golden syrup or honey
1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
2 tbsp. boiling water

Combine the flour, oats, coconut, and sugar in a bowl. Melt the butter and golden syrup (or honey) in a saucepan over a low heat.

Mix the bicarbonate of soda with the water and add to the butter and golden syrup.

Pour the liquids into the dry ingredients and mix well.

Spoon dollops of mixture, about the size of a walnut shell, onto a greased tin leaving as much space again between dollops to allow for spreading.

Bake in a moderate oven, 180°C (350°F) for 15 to 20 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack and seal in airtight containers.

The American tablespoon is a little smaller than the British tablespoon, so be generous with your golden syrup (or honey) and water.

If you have any thoughts of keeping the biscuits for any length of time I suggest you keep them in a padlocked container!

For a little variety you may wish to add 2 teaspoons of ginger or even wattle seeds, a recent addition but don't ask me where to get them.
