    Default Simple Anzac Cookies Recipe Needed

    Hi Folks,

    For those of you on the board who reside Down Under (Australia & NZ)
    as you would all be aware, this coming Sunday is ANZAC Day. Now I am
    able to just purchase a box of Anzac Cookies in the local supermarket,
    but I thought this year I would go to more of an effort and try and
    make my own at home. I am BY no means a great baker, so I am looking
    for a fail-proof recipe that will give me cookies which are crunchy on
    the outside, yet soft and moist on the inside.

    If anyone out there has a simple yet yummy Anzacs recipe, could you
    please share it here?!

    Kind Regards and thank you in advance,
    Brian

    Is Google broken? Try plugging in "biscuits" instead of "cookies" when you
    search.

    It's an oatmeal cookie with coconut, flavored with Lyle's Golden Syrup,
    or an equivalent extra-light colored molasses. And I don't think they
    have any baking soda or other leavening. I had a recipe, but I can't
    find it. I'll see if I can find one that looks right.

    I've done some searching on the Internet, and all the recipes out there
    are basically the same. And I was mistaken; the common ingredient that
    is missing from ANZAC Biscuits (they don't call 'em cookies) is eggs,
    not baking soda.

    When I made them, I substituted sorghum syrup for the golden syrup. You
    could also use ribbon cane syrup, but that's a little stronger. HTH :-)

    No clue, but I've heard good things about any form of pancake syrup
    being a substitute for people over the ocean from us.

    They're all pretty much the same, but here's a site with pictures to make it

    Hi Everyone,

    Thank you all so much for your suggestions in regards to Anzac Biscuit
    recipes. I know I mentioned in my OP that I was looking for a simple
    recipe, but upon seeing Dimitri's, I decided to throw caution to the
    wind and give the above method a try. Now, I know it is far from a
    traditional Anzac Biscuit recipe, but wow, the end product I found was
    delicious! The variety of spices, along with the cherries and walnuts
    in particular, gave it not only a lovely flavor, but also great
    texture. I am gonna keep this recipe as I am sure I will make it many
    times again.

    I will also try one of the more traditional Anzacs recipes tonite,
    like the one suggested by Michael in particular. I DO love them with a
    nice cup of tea - especially dipping them into the hot liquid as they
    go all soft and mushy!

    Thanks again guys and for those of you Down Under - have a nice Anzac
    Day
    (Lest We Forget)

    Kind Regards,
    Brian Anasta

    FWIW, I have in my hand an 11 ounce bottle of Lyle's Golden Syrup,
    purchased at Stop & Shop in Enfield, CT, today, for the lordly sum of
    $3.99. It in the baking aisle right next to the Karo Light. The only
    ingredient listed is "cane sugar syrup", nothing else. It's also marked
    "do not refrigerate". The flavor is about what one would expect, much
    of a muchness with the better grades of non-maple pancake syrup of my
    pre-high-fructose-corn-syrup youth, which is to say that it's pretty
    good and today even a little bit exotic.

    And the oven is warming for ANZAC cookies.

    Be aware the best are still a little soft in the middle but the outer
    has a snap and they sorta melt when eaten
    very easy to over bake and make to hard

    Used King Arthur all purpose flour and probably because of the high
    gluten content (or possibly to the smaller size of the US tablespoon)
    they made up on the dry side using the "Aussie Slang" recipe--not sure
    how much extra water I ended up adding. Next time I'm going to double
    up on the golden syrup and butter and maybe they'll need less water added.
