It's our special show for Carers and their families.
This is a repeat of Wednesday's show.

Best wishes

Hi Radioweytim!
What are my favourite biscuits? I love digestives! Hob Nobs come a close second, but I can't stand bourbons. I bought a Family Selection box of biscuits at Christmas but they were all soggy and stale! Yuk!
I also like bran flakes or muesli for breakfast.
Getting the ingredients today for making the ANZAC biscuits, only 6 weeks away from ANZAC day so will be all prepared.
Bowling Bun has got me inspired to do some baking Image

And I was wrong doh!! I was thinking of afghan biscuits that have cornflakes, Anzac's have rolled oats and coconut - what am I like lol.
as a rule, i don't really eat cookies...unless I make them myself. Today i celebrate losar and we make a sort of fried cookie... mine don;t come out looking as they are supposed to, but last time they fell to bits, so having lumps instead of fried crumbs is one step further towards success....

Hey Kiwigaz - those biscuits sound fab. They also sound like ones that my husband, who has to have a gluten-free diet, could eat. Could you post the recipe please?

Hi Crocus,
I have all my ingredients at the ready and am going to make a batch before ANZAC Day just to see how they go and if the recipe is okay (haven't baked them in years).
My recipe has flour in it but you can use gluten free flour.
I will post a pic of them when there are done, had everything prepared yesterday but had to get some new batteries for my scales and then take mother to the doctor and by the time all that was sorted I forgot doh!
Oh and I will put the recipe on here for you as well, see I nearly forgot to say that, another coffee requirement me thinks lol well it is only 4:40am
Well I have made them this morning and here is the proof, good job I took a photo as half have just about gone what with mother and the neighbours, oh and of course me.
I forgot how crispy they are but taste wonderful.

Crocus here is the recipe for you:

ANZAC Biscuits

125gms Flour (gluten free if required)
150gms Sugar
1 cup Coconut
1 cup Rolled Oats
100gms Butter
1 tblsp Golden Syrup
1/2 tspn Bicarb Soda
2 tblsp Boiling Water

Mix together flour, sugar, coconut and rolled oats. Melt butter and golden syrup. Dissolve bicarb soda in the boiling water and add to butter and golden syrup mixture. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add liquids. Place spoonfuls on greased tray and bake 15-20 minutes at 180 degrees C (350 d F) or gas mark 4.

Let me know how you get on with them Image
Sorry can't upload the photo as I can't get it down low enough in size.
Will see what I can do but they might all be gone by the time I can fathom it out lol
You have to use 'Photo_bucket' or some other site to down size your photo Kiwi, then post it onto CUK. Its a pain as the old site used to down size them for you automatically. Image
kiwi ,scally told me about a site called imageoptimizer ,i can't post a link but if you go to page 1 of birds in the gardens and scroll down,you will come to it.
