Anzac Cookies


I’ve been to Australia several times and each time is an emotion. I love this wild and distant land, yet modern, full of contradictions, it greets me and makes me feel part of it, as soon as I arrive in Sydney I feel at home, at ease and I wonder why haven’t moved there yet! Well the answer is that getting a visa is a little complicated, so when I get strong attacks of nostalgia I make these  typically Australian Anzac cookies, and I feel at home!

1 cup of flour
1 cup of grated coconut
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of oatmeal
1 tablespoon of table salt
125 gr of margarine
2 tablespoons of molasses
1 tablespoon  of boiling water
1 teaspoon of baking soda

In a large bowl mix all the dry  ingredients. In high saucepan melt the margarine on a low heat, remove from heat, add the molasses, stirring until the mixture gets smooth. Dissolve baking soda in water and then pour it into the mixture of margarine and molasses and mix well, it’ll rise and become fluffy (sometimes doesn’ happen), so keep an eye on it! Make a hole at the center of the bowl and slowly add the fluffy mixture! Amalgamate it well (I use my hands, as the mixture is quite sticky) and, always with your hands, make some pellets, about the size of a large walnut, lightly flatten them and lay them on a baking sheet, spaced, at 180°C for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven, cool and crunch them!

    I’ll try them! I have never made biscuits but they seem quite peculiar, I’m curious!
