Happy Anzac Day with homemade Anzac Cookies!

This is the first time I actually tried my hands on making these cookies, and I must say they are really simple and quick to make! I love the freshly baked smell of the desiccated coconut! Since it's Anzac day this coming Friday, I decided to put up this recipe in case anyone want to get into the holiday mood and make their own Anzac cookies.

Oaty Anzac Biscuits from Donna Hay's Modern Classics 2 (again)
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
2 tbs golden syrup
125g butter
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbs hot water

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Place the oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl. Place the golden syrup and butter in a saucepan over low heat and allow to melt. Mix the bicarbonate of soda with the water and add to the butter mixture. Pour the butter mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Place tablespoonfuls of the mixture on baking trays lined with nonstick baking paper, allowing room for the biscuits to spread, and flatten slightly. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Cool on wire racks. Makes 22.
