I've seen Anzac recipes and finally decided to make a batch for ZWT8. Wish that I'd tried them sooner because they are delicious. I made a half recipe and subbed Splenda for the sugars and a heart healthy margarine for the butter. These puppies do spread but after reading Peggie's review I was ready for them and juat put 12 on a sheet. I got 24 beautiful and yummy biscuits :D. Made for ZWT8
I've never made Anzac biscuits before, and I have to say that I've been missing out. These are just wonderful- sweet, buttery, crunchy on the edges, and have great texture from the oats and coconut. Mine spread quite a bit, I'll flatten the dough less next time. I used a cookie scoop instead of hand rolling, and got 21 cookies from a half recipe. These are definitely a keeper!

I've lived in Australia for 28 years and am finally getting around to making a batch of Anzac biscuits. Anzacs are wonderful, and I was on a search for a great recipe. This one is indeed great and also so easy-to-make. Believe Jubes when she says these biscuits spread. Mine were huge. I tried to squeeze 16 on a cookie sheet, but 12 would have been better. That said, mine were probably on the large side, as I only got 45 biscuits. And finally, I have a new-ish oven and I think it's running hot. My biscuits cooked to crisp within 12 minutes -- almost burnt the first tray.
O.K................... nearly the same recipe as I use...... Measurements and times are a little different, was all EXCEPT... the one small difference..... brown sugar! Now I was making mine yesterday and nearly ran out of sugar, and wondered, what would be the difference if I used brown sugar....shell I tell you all? <br/>The diffence is ......... DAAAA DAHHHH!!!!! <br/>Brown sugar makes the biscuits a little chewier & softer than normal sugar, so this recipe is great for half the family!!! lol<br/>Two of us like firm and crisp the remaining two prefer theirs soft and chewy ....SO, this recipe was great to try, the ones that like their Anzacs soft & chewy (ssshhh but they prefer the supermarket ones, bacause they are softer than eat mine) LOVE, LOVED, LOVED these Jules.<br/>So now because of you Jules I have to make two batches each time....... sheesh!<br/>Once again Jules you have posted a great recipe....Thanks from 2 of the family!
