Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 24

3/4 Cup(s) Desiccated coconut
1 Cup(s) Plain flour
1 Cup(s) Sugar
125 Gram(s) Margarine, or butter
1 Tablespoon(s) Golden syrup
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Bicarbonate of soda
2 Tablespoon(s) Boiling water.
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. Method 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 :-) (Ian Staples)
