anzac biscuits

Anzac biscuits are tried and tasted by palate corner from aparna's blog,they are  traditional biscuits of australia and newzealand,you can find the history of these biscuits over here.I love the baking goodies made my aparna ,my diverse kitchen and as soon as i went through her recipe list i knew im going to make these biscuits as i had tasted them here in melbourne many a times but never baked them at home and this was wonderful oppurtunity to try on my own in my kitchen and i was very excited as my biscuits turned out crisp from outside and chewy from inside,which anyone could have asked for,just perfect,thanx aparna for sharing such wonderful recipe,it was simple and u made it quite easy with the basic ingredients which are usually in our pantry.

makes approx 28-30 biscuits/cookies
dry ingredients :
3/4th cup plain flour
3/4th cup brown sugar ( i used white sugar)
1 cup oats
1/4th tsp salt
3/4th cup dessicated coconut
wet ingredients :
1/4 cup butter
2 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp soda bi-carb
3 tbsp hot water
method :
Mix all the dry ingredients together.Melt the butter in pan ,switch off the flame and add honey,mix hot water and soda together ,add this to butter  and honey mixture and mix well.Add this wet ingredients in the dry ingredients and make a soft dough.If the dough is little hard then add little water and if soft then add little flour
( mine was perfect ,i didnt had to add anything ).Take a heaped tablespoon of dough and make balls and flatten them slightly,make the same with the remaining dough.Grease a baking tray,preheat oven to 160c and bake the biscuits for 12-15 mins or till brown in colour,let it cool down completely as they might be still soft ,after it cools down it will turn little harder and store in airtight containers.
