ANZAC Biscuits

makes about 5 dozen cookies


2 1/4 cups rolled oats

2 cups shredded coconut

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup boiling water

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

10 Tbsp butter

7 Tbsp cane syrup or golden syrup


Preheat oven to 350°.  Whisk together the oats, coconut, flour, and sugar.  Stir together water and baking soda in a separate small bowl.  Melt the butter and syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat; add the baking soda mixture.  Stir the syrup mixture into the flour mixture to make a very thick dough.  Using a 1 oz scoop or 2 tablespoons, drop cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet 2" apart.  Bake until golden brown, 12-16 minutes.  Let cool on a wire rack.  Store in an airtight container.
