From: (Ian Staples) Date: Sat, 23 Apr 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 24. REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES /COOKIES From archives.

Anzac biscuits are the best biscuit, Anzac Day is the best day for brass bands. Use butter not margarine... and a bit more golden syrup too.

Delicious but expect them to really expand when they cook. I added some chopped Brazil nuts which were great.

A favourite in Australia. My son rang me when he was 18 and living away from home for the recipe.
