ANZAC BISCUITS

If golden syrup isn’t a regular in your pantry (Lyle’s is the brand if you’re in the US), you can substitute maple syrup or even honey. It will be a different flavour profile, of course, but it will work and still be very good.

Makes about 2 dozen.

125g (4½ oz) butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 cup (90g) rolled oats
1 cup (80g) desiccated coconut
1 cup (150g) plain flour
½ cup (110g) caster sugar
¼ cup (55g) brown sugar
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

Set your oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a baking tray (or two, if you have them) with baking paper.

In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter and golden syrup together. Remove from the heat and set aside.

In a roomy bowl, mix together the oats, coconut, flour and sugars with a wooden spoon.

Mix the bicarb with 2 tablespoons of boiling water in a small bowl. Stir into the butter-syrup mixture, then pour this into the oat mixture. Stir until all the ingredients are well combined.

Roll the mixture into heaped-tablespoon balls and place on the baking tray, leaving about 5cm (2 inches) between them. Bake for 12 minutes: they should be pale golden and quite soft. Leave on the tray for 5 minutes, where they will darken and set enough to be lifted to a wire rack. Leave to cool completely.

Oatmeal Peach Crumble Bars

INGREDIENTS

Oat Crumble – Crust

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 ⅓ cups rolled oats
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅔ cup unsalted buttermelted and cooled completely

Peach Filling

  • 2 ¼ cups peaches peeled and cut into small pieces (4-6 peaches, depending on size)
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt optional (brings out the flavor more)
  • 2 ½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice can also use orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8 inch baking pan and line the bottom and sides with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on each side for easy removal after it’s baked.

Peach Filling

  • Chop the peaches into small chunks about a ½ inch to 1 inch thick. Larger chunks result in peaches not being cooked through.
  • Mix the peaches with lemon juice and vanilla extract. Next, add in the cornstarch, sugar and salt (optional) and toss together. Set aside.

Oat Crumble – Crust

  • Mix the flour, rolled oats, sugar, cinnamon, and salt well in a medium bowl. Then add the cooled melted butter and stir with a spoon or spatula to mix together. Will resemble crumbles, but will stick together.
  • Place ⅔ of the mixture into the prepared baking pan. Spread and press the mixture evenly using your hands or the bottom of a measuring cup.
  • Next, cover the crust with the peach mixture, spooning out the peaches by leaving most of the juice in the bowl as much as possible. Over excess juice is not needed, so it’s better to drain the juice off.
  • Sprinkle the remaining dough over the peaches. Use your fingertips to press to the crumbles down a little so they can stick to peaches.
  • Bake for 35-37 minutes until the top becomes golden brown and the crumbles are crunchy.
  • Let cool at room temperature for almost 1 hour.
  • Keep bars in the fridge for extra 1,5 hours until it is completely cool so you can have nicely cut bars.

Spinach artichoke quesadillas

Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 8 oz artichoke hearts chopped and drained (1 cup)
  • 2 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 large tortillas

Instructions

  • In a large 12 inch frying pan over medium heat combine olive oil and cream cheese until cream cheese has melted, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Stir in minced garlic, artichokes, and spinach. Cook until spinach starts to shrink, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add in mozzarella and parmesan cheese and stir until melted. Remove from heat.
  • In a clean and dry frying pan over medium heat, place one tortilla in the pan. Scoop out ¼ of the spinach mixture and spread it out across one half of the tortilla. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling side. Heat for 1 to 2 minutes per side, until lightly browned.
  • Cut into 3 triangles. Repeat steps with remaining mixture and tortillas.
  • Serve hot or warm.

Notes

Use a dry frying pan because the tortillas would soak up any grease. A dry pan ensures a crispy quesadilla.Be careful not to overfill the tortilla to ensure the filling heats evenly and doesn’t ooze out the sides.Tortillas burn easily; fry on medium heat. The result will be golden, crispy outsides, and melty insides.
