    French Tart's Note:

    These biscuits are wholesome, simple to make and they pack and keep well. To keep them fresh for tramping trips it pays to pack them in day lots and label accordingly. Be warned:- Tararua biscuits can be jaw breakers as they are designed to have little moisture left by the end of cooking! Origin of this recipe: Associated with the Tararua Tramping Club by name, there are many many recipes for these biscuits. This one comes from "The New Zealand Outdoor Cookbook" by Marcelle Pilkinton - a little gem of a book for outdoor types.

      These are OMG delicious! They melt in your mouth! Not necessarily a good thing! These knocked our socks off, and 5 stars is not enough, even though when I made them, the desiccated coconut was not yet in the instructions; I added with the rolled oats. Thanks, FT! Made for ZWT5, Kitchen Witches.

      WOW! I expected these to be hard as rock jawbreaking clods but was I ever surprised! These are great, wholesome "cookies", kinda like a granola bar. My sons devoured them. Thanks for a great simple recipe. Made for Photo Tag.
