As promised, we have one more delicious recipe from New Zealand. I think that to-date this has been my favorite cooking destination on this adventure and I know that many of these recipes will become part of our regular rotation. Earlier this week, Mr. N and I baked up these little gems – ANZAC Biscuits.
They are a traditional treat from both Australia and New Zealand and were often sent to soldiers in the Great War; thus the name Australian and New Zealand Army Corp or ANZAC biscuits. The traditional recipe is easy to make and the biscuits last for weeks without perishing.
Mr. N and I baked these up in about an hour. First we combined the flour, oats, coconut and sugar into a bowl. Next we melted the butter into the golden syrup. Golden syrup is absolutely crucial to this recipe and difficult to find. We ordered this can on Amazon.
Next we made a well in the dry ingredients and added the wet ingredients, mixing them together completely. Finally we placed teaspoon sized balls onto a greased cookie sheet and depressed them with a fork.
The ANZAC biscuits are divine when freshly baked. Mr. N really enjoyed these cookies fresh, but his enthusiasm waned the next day. Dad, Miss A and I on the other hand, have been eating these up all week (and that’s after giving several away). The recipe makes about 45 cookies. Once again, New Zealand gives us a tasty recipe! Cheerio mate!
