Coconut oatmeal cookies are the thing that I bake the most often. The Anzac biscuits for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie are a version of coconut oatmeal cookies that uses Lyle's Golden Syrup plus sugar for sweetening and does not include eggs.
I was unable to find Lyle's Golden Syrup at the grocery store. I researched substitutes and went with light corn syrup and molasses in a 2:1 ratio.
My other deviation from the recipe was to use unsweetened coconut.
Dorie says the dough will be soft and a tad crumbly. My dough was very crumbly. I used my new cookie scoop which was great for even portions of dough. I pushed the dough crumbs together and assumed that they would bake up fine into cookies and they did.
