Anzac Biscuits

One of the most important holidays in Australia is ANZAC day, celebrated on April 25. ANZAC stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps, and the day celebrates the brave deeds of the men who fought in World War I. There are huge celebrations held every year, and many people celebrate by making ANZAC biscuits (cookies). These cookies were created during the war when people would send them in care packages to the soldiers. You can make a batch of these anytime of the year, but make sure to bake a batch to celebrate ANZAC day!

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine oats, coconut, flour, and sugar in a medium-sized bowl. In a saucepan, add the butter and syrup and stir over low heat until the butter melts. Mix the baking soda with the boiling water and add to the saucepan. Pour the contents of the saucepan into the flour mixture and stir with a spoon until it is solid dough. Drop small balls of the dough onto a lightly greased pan and flatten with your hand, but allow the cookies room to spread. Bake the cookies for 20 minutes or until they are golden brown. Enjoy!
