The pie maker can make anything – so why not an Anzac biscuit pie? If you’re a bit bored of your regular Anzac biscuit, shake things up with a crunchy-on-the-outside-chewy-in-the-inside mega Anzac biscuit pie. YUM!
I’ve done a fair bit of experimenting with my beloved Kmart pie maker. I’ve had some scrumptious wins (like the pie maker nutella doughnuts and my pie maker mushroom pizzas) and inevitably, there have been some fails too (let’s don’t talk about my attempt to make lemon meringue pies).
I have been mulling over what kind of Anzac biscuit to make this year. Mouths of Mums have heaps of delicious recipes to choose from – there is the Anzac biscuit slice, chocolate dipped Anzacs and even Anzac lactation cookies. But I figured why not try an Anzac biscuit pie?
I actually got the idea from the brilliant Kmart Pie Maker facebook group and I thought I would do my own version.
I used Mouths of Mum’s very own Best ANZAC biscuits recipe, which is, as the name says, the best recipe for Anzac bikkies. I then popped the batter into the pie maker, cooked it for a few minutes and then drizzled some melted chocolate over for decoration and some added decadence.
The result was AWESOME – the outside of the pie was crunchy and the inside was chewy and soft. It really was the perfect ANZAC taste sensation.
A few tips to keep in mind:
1) Each pie is quite a mouthful – I used the entire batter to make only four pies so you may need to cut them into halves for the kids. Or you could try make shallower pies – you could probably make eight smaller pies
2) Place a strip of baking paper on the base of each pie hole, with the ends extending beyond the pie hole, before adding the batter. Then when you want to remove the pie, you simply grab hold of the ends of the baking paper to carefully lift up the pie
3) Don’t overcook the pie! It’s very tempting to leave the Anzac biscuit pie in the pie maker for too long as it still may seem too soft. But the pie will harden on cooling. The pie will burn on top if you leave it for too long.
Ingredients (makes 8 Small Pies)
- 1 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1 Cup Plain Flour
- 2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2/3 Cup Dessicated Coconut
- 125grams butter
- 2 Tablespoons golden syrup
- 2 Tablespoons cold water
- 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
- Melted chocolate for decoration (optional)
- Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a large mixing bowl.
- Place butter, golden syrup and water in a saucepan on medium heat. Stir until butter is melted. Stir in bicarbonate soda (this will foam).
- Stir butter mixture into the dry ingredients in bowl.
- Place a strip of baking paper on the base of each pie hole, with the ends extending beyond the pie hole, before adding the batter.
- Divide the mixture in half and fill up the four pie maker holes with half of the mixture for smaller pies. For larger pies, use the full amount of mixture to make four mega pies.
- Switch on the pie maker and close it.
- Cook for about 8 - 10 minutes. Once the pies are golden brown on the outside, grab the ends of the baking paper strip and carefully remove from the pie maker.
- Set aside to cool. The pies will harden as they are cooling.
- Drizzle melted chocolate over the pies for decoration.
