ANZAC Biscuits

While browsing through Aparna's My Diverse Kitchen, i got hooked to this crunchy and easy Anzac biscuits..Immediately i tried them out sterday evening for our snacks..This ANZAC biscuits have a beautiful story and there were many versions regarding the origin of this biscuits..This ANZAC Biscuits are a sweet biscuit popular in Australia and New Zealand, made using rolled oats, flour, coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, bicarbonate of soda and boiling water. Anzac biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I.It has been said that the biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation.. Today, ANZAC Biscuits are manufactured commercially for retail sale and are popular in Australia and New Zealand...I really wanted to make this biscuits since its goes for very easy ingredients and as Aparna told i dont have neither corn syrup nor golden syrup so i followed exactly as she went for honey and this biscuits turns prefect golden, crunchy outer and chewy inner, u can check Aparna's ANZAC biscuits here..We enjoyed having along with a cup of coffee and we loved it..This ANZAC biscuits goes directly to Kid's Menu hosted by Neha..

ANZAC Biscuits

1cup Rolled oats
3/4cup Packed brown sugar
3/4cup All purpose flour
3/4cup Dessicated coconut
1/4tsp Salt
1/4cup Butter
2tbsp Honey
1+1/2tsp Baking soda
3tbsp Boiling water

In a bowl mix together the rolled oats, brown sugar, all purpose flour,dessicated coconut and salt together..melt the butter, add the honey and give a stir, now add the baking soda to the boiling water and stir in to the butter-honey mixture..

Now add this wet mixture to the dry ingredients and turn as firm dough, take a tablespoon of dough and rolll it as a ball, flatten slightly with your palm, if the dough is of correct consistency, u will be able to roll as smooth ball..if the dough is bit dry add water or if its too wet, add enough flour..

Preheat the oven to 160C, arrange the flattened biscuits and bake for 12to 15minutes in middle rack, put off the oven once the biscuits turns golden brown, take care not to burn them..Let them cool completely and conserve them in an air tightened box..
