  1. For the delicious Anzac Christmas cookies, put the butter in a saucepan that is slowly warmed up and the butter melts. Then you put the pot aside to cool down.
  2. After the melted butter is a little cooler, add the syrup and mix everything together.
  3. Then you sift the flour into a bowl and mix in the baking powder. Then add the pinch of salt, the coconut and oat flakes and stir the whole thing.
  4. Pour the liquid butter with the syrup over the dry ingredients and knead everything together.
  5. If the dough is too dry, add a little water. Finally, shape about 20 balls from the dough, which are pressed flat on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  6. In the oven, slide the baking sheet onto the 2nd rail and bake the Anzac biscuits for about 15 minutes at 160 ° C in the oven. When the top layer hardens, the biscuits are done, even if they still feel a bit soft on the inside, they become harder as soon as they are cold.
