Anzac biscuits

I made Anzac biscuits on this blog ten years ago, when I was living in Sydney. (Sidebar: Ten years ago– holy smokes! I’ve been writing this thing for over ten years! I just now realized I missed that big milestone back in February.) I baked them then, as I did this year, to mark Anzac Day, a day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand (you can read more about it here), which is coming up on April 25.

Anzac biscuits are sturdy cookies. With no eggs in the recipe, a mixture of melted butter and golden syrup binds together all the coconut and rolled oats that are packed into the biscuits. I don’t have any problem finding golden syrup where I live in Brooklyn, and it’s become a cupboard staple since my time in Sydney, but if you can’t find it, fellow TWDer Mardi (who helped Dorie develop this recipe for the book– so cool!) suggests brown rice syrup as a sub. These are chewy and really good…this version has a little pop of salt that’s missing from most Anzac biscuit recipes but plays really well with the sweetened coconut. This batch of cookies didn’t spread nearly as much as the other I’d made back in ’07, but I don’t mind the chubby, rustic look.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already!

  1. These look delicious. How neat that you have a history with these cookies.

  2. They look really good. I’m mostly interested in them because of the oatmeal. I like oatmeal cookies. That and the cultural experience.

  3. Wow 10 years of dedication to your blog Steph – that’s impressive! You just reminded me I need to add these to my to-cook list for Friday ahead of the weekend. What’s your top storage tip?

    • i just stored the cookies in an airtight container. they lasted about four days…i baked them so they’d be chewy rather than crispy.

  4. Ten years! Wow. The biscuits look lovely.

  5. Legend! Can’t wait to make some for next week’s ANZAC celebrations in Sydney. Hope you’re having a great day Steph and congratulations on 10 years of blogging!

  6. Anzacs are an old favourite here. Time flies, doesn’t it – my blog turns 10 in a month’s time.

  7. Looks so crispy and tasty 🙂

  8. These look beautiful! And no matter what recipe I use, they always turn out differently!

  9. Congratulations on 10 years of a Blog ! I am very impressed. That is dedication!

  10. I love golden syrup (it’s also a staple for me since living in the UK!), these look so crisp and delicious!

  11. Congratulations on the milestone. We loved these cookies and fun to learn the history. I recently visited NY the first part of the month. Unexpectedly cold weather but a good time was had by all.

  12. Yum! I absolutely love Anzac Cookies!! They are so gooey and delicious. Congrats on the milestone ❤



  13. Congratulations on the ten year anniversary! These cookies were a huge hit at our house!
