Based on an old recipe from a packet of oats, I've finally gotten to the point where I can make these perfectly. Keep an eye on them as they cook- I cook them two sheets at a time, but everyone's oven is different so be careful. Take them out when they are a uniform colour.

I used just margarine as that is all I had. These were nice but 10 mins in the oven and I had burned bottoms. I checked against other anzac recipes and they baked at 150 to 160C (a slow oven) so the second batch I did went in at 140 as my oven is gas. Success this time, and a lovely biscuit. Thanks!
