ANZAC biscuits are a famous recipe. You'll have no trouble finding an ANZAC recipe, but I think this particular one is the BEST. My husband Jeff (who tweaked the recipe until it was just right) entered these biscuits into the Melbourne Royal Show a few years ago, and won first prize. It was a novice category. Never mind about that bit. First is first!
I've annotated the recipe, illustrating ingredients and steps that I think are interesting.
Preheat the oven to 150C. Prepare some baking trays with baking paper or silicone baking mats.
Combine dry stuff in bowl (that's the first four ingredients). Melt butter and syrup. Dissolve bicarb in water, then add to butter/syrup. Mixture will foam up.
Add foaming mixture to dry ingredients and combine thoroughly. Mixture should be firm enough to roll into a ball on a teaspoon. Place them on the tray with some room to spread.
Bake for 20 minutes at 150C.
Leave on the tray a few minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
