I’ve been on a little baking binge lately. I definitely have my favourites: those chocolate chip cookies; there is this Martha Stewart coconut cookie recipe I’ve adapted that I’ll have to share with you one of these days… oh, and I love me a good cupcake (red velvet being my current favie)! … but lately I’ve been baking a biscuit that I’ve never been a big fan of… but this easy recipe and the lovely smell coming from my oven, is steadily changing my mind!
May I present to you, the humble Anzac biscuit:
(These ones spent a little too long in the oven… but they still tasted yummy!)
I love these biscuits because they have a lovely chewy texture that I really adore. The combination of coconut, rolled oats and golden syrup is really lovely too. Also, if you’re cooking this one with the littlies, it’s quite cool to show them how the butter and golden syrup mixture foams up when you stir in the baking soda.
So, on to the recipe. This one comes straight from the pages of New Zealand’s food bible: The Edmonds Cookbook… (you can click on the recipe to bring it up in a new window in a larger/printable size).
As always, I’d love to know what you think if you decide to give the recipe a go… and if you have a favourite biscuit/cookie recipe, please let me know, as I LOVE to try out new recipes! Happy Sunday Lovelies.
