New Zealand’s famous Anzac Cookies! I’m well known for these at my local Farmers Markets I use to attend and now in my van. My regular’s love them with their morning coffee or tea! I’m also teaching them all the kiwi lingo like Long Black (Americano), Fluffy (Babycino) oh and that Kia Ora means hello not an old school English fruit drink!
1 CUP PLAIN FLOUR
1 CUP BROWN SUGAR
1 CUP ROLLED OATS
1 CUP COCONUT
1 CUP SEEDED MIX
¼ CUP GOLDEN SYRUP
½ TEASPOON BAKING SODA
Preheat oven to 180 Degrees Celsius.
Mix all dry ingredients together except for the baking soda.
Add butter, water and golden syrup to a microwave proof bowl and put into the microwave until melted and starting to bubble. Add the baking soda to the butter mix but be careful as sometimes it can go a bit crazy and start bubbling away for a second or two.
Add the butter mix to the dry ingredients and mix well, don’t worry you can’t over or under mix this.
Now for this step I use an ice cream scoop, one with the bit inside the scoop and when you squeeze the handle it releases the ice cream, that way I get even cookies but you can also just use a large spoon too. So which ever way you choose scoop your cookie mix onto an tray with baking paper then use a wet fork to slightly press down onto your cookies to flatten them a bit and also give them a pretty pattern on top.
Place your cookies into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden. They will harden slightly as they cool.
Enjoy, Love G xx
