Rob’s Anzac Biscuits

By Rob Kennedy of Kialla Pure Foods

Kialla matriarch Rob Kennedy has many years of country cooking behind her, including stints catering for shearing teams and stockmen. Having arrived in outback Qld as a young bride in the 1960s when refrigerators ran on kerosene and carbide lights substituted for electricity, Rob very quickly learnt how to cook with a minimum of ingredients. Nowadays she lives a much more comfortable life in ‘the big smoke’! These classic crunchy Anzac biscuits are a Kennedy family favourite.

Ingredients
1 cup Kialla Organic Rolled Oats
1 cup sugar
1 cup coconut (Dessicated)
110g butter
1 tbspn Golden Syrup
1 tspn bi-carb soda
2 tbspn hot water

Method
1. Boil butter, sugar, syrup, and water. Lastly add soda
2. Add this liquid to all dry ingredients.
3. Bake in a very slow oven 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
4. Biscuits will still be soft and will harden as they cool.
5. Let cool on tray for 10mins then transfer to a wire rack.

Jan’s Marina Biscuits

Kialla matriarch Rob Kennedy grew up on these biscuits. They were also a favourite during the next generation's childhood. They suspect they are named after Princess Marina of Greece who married Prince George (an uncle of Queen Elizabeth II) in a royal wedding extravaganza in 1934. They’ve tweaked the original icing for a lemony zing. Makes about 20 biscuits as long as no one tucks into them before you ice them!

Ingredients:

Biscuits:
6 tbspn butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tbspn milk
2 cups Kialla Self Raising Flour
pinch salt
2 tbspn cocoa
2 cups dessicated coconut

Icing:
¾ cup icing sugar
1 tbspn butter
5 drops vanilla or 1 tspn lemon juice
warm water

Method
1. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time.
2. Fold in dry ingredients alternating with milk.
3. Spoon small balls of the mix onto a biscuit tray. If mixture is crumbly, add a little extra milk.
4. Bake in moderate oven (180ºC) for 10mins. Let cool on tray for a further 10mins then remove to cool completely on a wire rack.
Icing:
1. Mix all icing ingredients and beat until well combined. Add vanilla or lemon juice and enough warm water to create a smooth consistency.
2. Ice the biscuit halves once cooled and sandwich them together.
