Anzac Cookies

Makes: 1 1/2 dozen

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 Tsp salt
1 Tsp baking soda
2 Tbps boiling water
1/2 cup butter
3 Tbps golden syrup

Adjust rack to centre position and preheat oven to 350F. Combine flour, sugar, oats, walnuts, cocnut and salt in a bowl. Set aside.

Measure the baking soda into a small bowl. Pour a splash of boiling water in and stir until the mixture stops fizzing. Repeat until you use all the water and the fizzing stops.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter. REmove from heat and add syrup and stir. Pour the butter syrup mixture and the baking soda mixture into the flour bowl. Stirring by hand, mix well.

Use an ice cream scoop to form rounded balls of batter and arrange on an ungreased cookie sheet. Using your palm, press batter into disks about 3 inches in diameter. Bake until edges are golden, about 8-10 minutes. Best Blogger Tips
