2018 F1 Kickoff Party - Australian treats: Anzac Biscuits
With the start of the F1 Season we are ready to celebrate! This year we invited a few friends over for an F1 Kickoff Party and some Aussie favorites including Aussie burgers with the lot, Anzac biscuits and our lovely friends brought cheesy bread, many beers, and pavlova!
We put on an F1 Introduction YouTube playlist in the background which prompted a lot of great conversations, and we all had a chance to laugh at Kimi being his usual self and Alonso and Button bantering about what is appropriate behavior when borrowing someone else's F1 car.
Aussie burgers are always a favorite. Each person made their own version, some more adventurous than others! They were great with beef burgers, turkey burgers, fried eggs, pickled beets, onion, pineapple, pickles, all or none of the above.
And we topped of the savory with some sweet. My lovely friends brought homemade pavlova and we made some Anzac Biscuits.
"Anzac biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I. The biscuits were sent by wives and women's groups to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation."
These biscuits or cookies, whatever you want to call them, are super quick to make and a perfect finish to an Aussie themed meal.
Mine turned out a little more like laceys, crispy, crunchy and caramelized. Which honestly was lovely, so no complaints here. If you try them let me know how yours turn out!
1 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup flaked coconut
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
2 tablespoons boiling water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix oats, flour, sugar and coconut together (if using sweetened coconut, reduce sugar by 1 tablespoon).
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the syrup and butter together.
Mix the baking soda and the boiling water and add to the melted butter and syrup.
Add butter mixture to the dry ingredients.
Drop by teaspoons on greased cookie sheets (or baking paper).
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, checking after 10 to make sure they don't burn. They will be very floppy, let them rest for 5 minutes or so before moving them to a cooling rack to cool for another 10 minutes before enjoying.
Renault and Ferrari are at it again with creating great posters for 2018! Excited to see what they come up with for the rest of the season.
