Today here in Australia & New Zealand it's ANZAC Day. Today is the day we celebrate our brave Soldiers or "Diggers" as we like to call them. Each day we celebrate ANZAC Day on the 25th April each year. Today is one day that I am so glad to be an Aussie. I am so grateful to all the soldiers past & present for their sacrifices. War shouldn't be celebrated, but what our brave soldiers have done & are doing to help keep people safe should.
One of the good things to come from the war (if any good can) is a biscuit called an Anzac Biscuit. There are many different versions out there, but the one thing they all have in common is oats & golden syrup.
Here is a recipe:
1 Cup rolled oats
1 Cup plain flour
1 Cup sugar
3/4 Cup coconut
125g (4oz) butter
2 tblspn golden syrup
1/2 tspn bicarb soda
1 tblspn boiling water
Combine oats, sifted flour, sugar & coconut. Combine the butter & golden syrup in a pot & stir over low heat until melted. Mix soda with boiling water & add to melted butter mixture. Then stir into dry ingredients. Place tablespoons of mixture on lightly greased trays (allow room for spreading). Cook in a slow oven for 20 minutes. Makes about 35.
I'd make sure that the trays are well greased or use baking paper or silicon baking sheets. Because the biscuits will stick.
Well we are off to visit Doug's dad now. Have a great day & happy crafting xoxoxoxo
