    Didn't we fight against the Italians in WW2 and interred all Italian men in that period?

      No, actually these wars were not fought so much against countries or thier peoples as much as against facism and political ideologies that were being forced on others....
      scottz... appreciate your reminder to raise a glass to those who sacrificed thier lives giving us the Freedom that we enjoy today.

        My son baked the most amazing Anzac bikkies in the oven the next morning after a pizzafest, they absolutely just melted in the mouth.

        Its worth a try.

          With a comment like that, it commands a recipe!!!!
          I always look for something to do and cook in the cooling oven and a 'good' anzac biscuit is ideal.
          My sister made some good anzacs a few weeks ago and then repeated the recipe with a little more butter which ended up more like brandy snaps.

          Cheers.

                  Re: ANZAC Day

                  When the Anzac biscuit first came up, I googled it and discovered that it was full of the hated dried grated coconut. Otherwise it seemed like a pretty standard oatmeal cookie.

                  Your enclosed recipe looks much better. The despised coconut is missing. It uses much more oatmeal than flour (most recipes are 1 to 1). I'm going to give these a try.

                  For those like myself that are "golden syrup" deprived, it's suggested that honey is a good substitute.

                    Re: ANZAC Day

                    Here's the metric amounts for the anzac biscuit recipe:

                    180g rolled oats
                    60g sugar
                    94g flour
                    22g golden syrup
                    5g bicarb of soda
                    14g boiling water
                    125 grams butter (given) (114g=1 stick)

                    These were assembled using various web calculators. Will test soon.

                      David,
                      theses are staple biscuits down here and very popular. Although you Americans have different tastes to us Aussies (like Vegemite) you just might enjoy them.
                      To put a batch in the cooling oven just might develop into a tradition!

                      Cheers
