    mersaydees's Note:

    This is based on a recipe from Beatrice Ojakangas’, Great Holiday Baking Book. She explains, “Australians still participate in the tradition of four o’clock afternoon tea, which can be a simple or formal occasion, and features a selection of sandwiches, scones, cookies, and cakes that are fancy and plain. This is the time to rest and ‘restoke the furnace.’ These thin, crisp oat and coconut drop cookies are a welcome part of the simplest or most elaborate tea." I haven’t yet tried this.

      What a great cookie recipe. We loved them. I made my cookies extra large, they spread nicely, had a great texture and tasted amazing. I greased my pan and didn't have any problems removing them. Love coconut and oatmeal together, these certainly didn't disappoint. They were quick and easy to make. Thanks for sharing a recipe, that I shared with my friends and neighbors. We all enjoyed them very much and I managed to grab the last cookie. :)

      Just wanted to add a note about these biscuits... The Anzac cookies originated from when the Australian soldiers were fighting in Vietnam and the wives sent over these biscuits. We call them biscuits, not cookies in Australia, and Anzac stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corp. :)
