ANZAC biscuits


Anzac biscuits are now baked commercially. They are a popular snack, a food of last resort for hikers and a very meaningful fund-raising item for veterans organizations and other military related events.

2 T
molasses (substitute with dark treacle)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F (175° C). Spray a baking sheet with vegetable cooking spray, or rub with butter or margarine. This will prevent the cookies from sticking to the sheet.
  2. Place coconut, rolled oats, flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
  3. Melt butter or margarine in a small saucepan over low heat; stir in molasses and water once melted. Pour the liquid mixture into the flour mixture and blend well.
  4. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough onto the baking sheet, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, so the cookies have room to expand. Flatten each blob of dough with a fork.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown. Transfer the biscuits to a rack and let them cool for at least 10 minutes.
