Preheat oven to 180°
C (350° F).
Combine oats, flour and
sugar in a bowl.
Melt butter and Golden
Syrup (or honey) in a saucepan over a low heat. Mix baking soda with water
and add to the butter mixture.
Combine liquids with
dry ingredients and mix well. Spoon dollops of mixture, about the size
of a walnut shell, onto a greased tin, leaving as much space again between
dollops to allow for spreading.
Bake in a preheated,
180° C (350° F) oven for 15-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack and
seal in airtight containers.
Tips: The American tablespoon
is a little smaller than the British tablespoon, so be generous with your
Golden Syrup (or Honey) and Water.

From our friend, Brian Wilson come this information about Soldier's cookies: "Soldiers Biscuit was one of the original names for these
biscuits and was only changed to ANZAC sometime after the Gallipol landing. Therefore, you can date the Soldier's Biscuit recipe to
somewhere most likely between 1914 and 1920 or so. The anzac recipe however, would be dated after 1927 as they didn't begin to include
coconut until after this year."
