94 22:02:29 +1000 This coming Monday (25 April 94) Australia and New
Zealand commemorate their war dead on Anzac Day (Australian & New
Zealand Army Corps, which were among the first soldiers ashore in the
battle at Gallipoli in 1915 during World War I ~ a 9-month campaign
with grievous losses). This day has become our most important national
day of remembrance. Scottish oatmeal biscuits were cooked at home
during WWI and sent to the soldiers fighting overseas. After the war,
these oat-based biscuits were named Anzac Biscuits when they were made
and sold as fund-raisers for returned soldiers. The following recipe
was published in The Cairns Post 20 April 1994. Mix oats, flour, sugar
and coconut. Melt syrup and margarine [butter!] together in a small
saucepan. Mix soda with boiling water and add to the syrup and
margarine mix. Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Place globs
(about 1 T each) of the mix onto greased trays, allowing room for
spreading while cooking. Cook for about 30 minutes at 150 degrees
Celsius [about 300 F] Cool completely on racks before storing any you
might have left :-) Makes REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES /COOKIES From archives. Downloaded from Glen's MM Recipe Archive,
