Lest We Forget

Yes it's a sad day but a day to remember those that have sacrificed their lives for us and also the men and women who are still fighting for us today.

It's also the day my gorgeous niece, Olivia was born. (not the same year of course! hee hee)

I would like to celebrate this day and also remember the ANZAC BISCUIT!!
(Like we haven't eaten enough this Easter weekend!)

So I give to you the recipe!

A group of women during World War 1 decided to make biscuits to send to the soldiers
that would provide nutrition and keep for a long time. They were originally called Soldiers
biscuits but after Gallipoli the name was changed to Anzac biscuits.

Recipe for Anzac Biscuits.

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup plain flour

1 cup sugar

¾ cup coconut

125g (4oz) butter

2 tablespoons golden syrup

½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

1 tablespoon boiling water

1) Combine oats, sifted flour, sugar and coconut.

2) Combine butter and golden syrup, stir over gentle heat in a small saucepan until

3) Mix bicarbonate of soda with boiling water in a teacup. Add to melted butter mixture.
Pour into dry ingredients and stir.

4) Place tablespoonfuls of mixture on oven trays (for easy cleanup place a piece of
baking paper on the tray)

5) Cook in a slow oven for 20 minutes. Makes about 35.

6) Try and stop your family eating them while they are still warm and soft.

Once they are cool they will go harder and you can store them in a container.
I'm sure you won't need the container! lol.
A day to remember ALL that made sacrifices, not only on the front lines but at home as well.
Sending all my love and prayers for those who are fighting for us today!
