Nanna K’s ANZAC Biscuits

anzac There are a few indisputable truths in this world. 1+1=2, we will all die at some point and my Nanna K made the best biscuits to ever grace this planet^. Sitting in her kitchen watching her as a child was where I fell in love with cooking. Before her death last year, when it was becoming hard for her, she still baked every week and always made our favourites at Christmas. Her yo-yos, caramel slice and checker biscuits were the stuff of legend in our house. Suffice to say I was pretty excited when my sister sent me this during the week and I had to share it with you. The corner of the page from Nan’s old handwritten book was curled over and a couple of quantities are missing from the photo. A quick internet search helped her fill in the gaps as best she could but otherwise here is Nan’s recipe in all it’s glory. Ingredients ¾ cup sugar 1 cup plain flour 1 ½ cups rolled oats ½ coconut ½ cup chopped nuts (optional) 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp carb soda Pinch of salt Vanilla ¼ pound butter (roughly 113g) 1 tbs golden syrup 2 tbs boiling water Method Sift dry ingredients together (I don’t think she meant the coconut or the nuts). Boil butter and golden syrup Dissolve soda in boiling water Pour onto dry ingredients and roll mixture into walnut size balls Put onto greased tray and bake in a moderate oven* for around ten minutes. *A moderate oven is generally 180-190 degrees Celsius. LEST WE FORGET. ^ okay this one might be subjective.
