      I loved reading the history of the Anzac biscuit! These were fabulous biscuits/cookies. It was my first time trying golden syrup and I'm glad I did. The coconut flavor really shines through and gives these biscuits a lovely flavor. Thanks mate! Made for ZWT8 Australia/NZ

      We enjoyed these cookies with a cup of tea. I added 1/4 c slivered almonds, broken up, because I had some left over from another recipe. I liked them in the cookie, which I will certainly make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      My family all enjoyed these and give 5 stars (sorry -I couldn't taste them as not gluten-free). This is a very typical style recipe for Anzac biscuits. I found they needed a few extra minutes in the oven to turn a lovely golden brown colour. This recipe made 22 biscuits for us. Reviewed for Aus/NZ region ZWT8. Photo also to be posted
