Like an oatmeal cookie but better, Anzac biscuits are soft and chewy in the middle with crunchy, caramelized edges
You can mix the flour together in a bowl. And the best part is, they don't contain eggs, so they can be completely vegetarian
However, what makes Anzac biscuits unique is the use of golden syrup in the dough. This, it turns out, was that secret flavor
Golden syrup (also known as light molasses) is a cane sugar syrup often used in British and Australian/kiwi baking.
Ingredients for Anzac Biscuits – 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick) – 2 Tbsp golden syrup (can sub to corn syrup if needed) – 2 tbsp hot water – 1 tsp baking soda – 2/3 cup granulated sugar – 1/4 tsp salt – 1 cup flour – 1 cup rolled oats – 3/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
Servings - 22 Cookies, Prep Time - 15 mins, Cooking Time - 25 mins, Type - Cookies
These will keep for up to a week in a sealed container at room temperature. Baked biscuits will also freeze, wrapped well, for up to 3 months.
Unbleached dough also freezes well- scoop the dough into balls, freeze on a platter until solid
