Anzac biscuits with macadamia nuts - achookwoman

Anzac biscuits with macadamia nuts

Ingredients:


120g butter
2 Tbsp Golden Syrup [100g]
100g rolled oats
180g plain flour
125g sugar- brown
50g desiccated coconut
1 tsp. bicarbonate of soda
3 Tbsp of water
150g macadamias chopped

Method:

Preheat oven to 160oC (fan forced) and prepare baking tray.

Place butter and golden syrup in TM bowl and heat for 2 minutes at 60oC on speed 2.

Add remaining ingredients and mix for 10 seconds on speed 2.

Place one dessertspoon of mixture onto trays and flatten with wet fingers.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown

Remove from oven and cool on tray for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool.

Tip:

I use a 4 cm ice cream scoop and this makes 34 biscuits about 8 cm in diameter.
I usually chop the nuts by hand for a better texture.  DH likes his a bit soft and chewy,  I like mine crunchy.   So I cook mine a bit more.

members' comments

cookie - they were lovely. The only thing I did was chop the macadamias before I made the biscuits. Lovely recipe.

courton - Made the biscuits today but forgot to chop the macadamia nuts upfront..lol! Left it out of the recipe this time. The success of the recipe was revealed when I left the room for 15 mins and DD had consumed 4 of these whilst they were cooling! 5 stars in our household.

JD - Tried these Chookie - great little recipe.  Thanks again.

Thermomixer -  I made some today without macadamias - because macadamias can cause problems in dogs and our dogs ALWAYS end up eating some of the bikkies.  

Chelsea - These were delicious.  Thanks Chookie!  

MJ - These are simply delicious! I'm crunching on one right now. I like them crispy, so cook for 20 minutes. Thanks again Chookie!

CP - thanks Chookie, made these today - very nice with the macadamias.

thermo18 - Made these this morning, thanks Chookie.

You have been very busy with all this converting. Thanks. These Anzacs look yum.

Hi, I printed out your recipe to make it and realised that I didn't know if you used 180 gm plain flour or 80 gm plain flour... I will wait until your reply before venturing forth in the kitchen to bake these beauties. Thks

Yes, that is correct Thermomixer, 180g plain flour.   Also a good idea to chop up the macs.

Isi, it means Australia & New Zealand Army Corps - a contingent of men who combined to fight together in World War 1.

Not necessarily a bad mistake to make.  At least they can go to nut-free schools!

I adapted this recipe for a friend who found the one in the EDC book,  too sweet.   Her 11 year old son made them,  and ate them!!   It was the first recipe that I had converted,  I'm so glad that you like them. 8) 8)
