Anzac Biscuits With my notes added

1 cup flour
1 cup sugar I used raw sugar
1 3/4 cups coconut (coarsely shredded coconut is great
for texture) I used sweet shredded, and buzzed in processor a moment
1 1/2 cups rolled oats I used 1 3/4 cups large
organic flakes
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, I used 3/4 cup
100g butter
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup I used 3 tablespoons
1 teaspoon baking soda I used only 1 /2 teaspoon
2 tablespoons boiling water

Preheat oven to 160?C. Mix flour, sugar, coconut,
rolled oats and walnuts in a bowl.
Melt butter and golden syrup together. Mix baking soda
with boiling water to dissolve. Mix both butter and
baking soda mixtures together in a large bowl. Add flour
mixture and combine.
Roll teaspoonsful into small balls. Place on a well
greased or baking paper lined oven tray and press
flat with the back of a spoon. Allow room for biscuits
to spread.
Bake for 25 ? 30 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and store
in an airtight container.
Makes: 40 biscuits
I also found I could not shape into balls because mixture
was too coarse , so I spread it into a large non stick
cookie pan, rolled it over with rolling pin, and baked
about 40 mins or until almost firm to touch, then cut
into squares.
Very crunchy,,,,,,,
