My mom always believed that her children should be able to do anything in the house whether they were a boy or girl. Hence, my brother could bake cakes, iron shirts and vacuum a carpet with the best of them!
We always had cakes and cookies in the house and they were mostly made by my brother and me. My sister was the youngest and she figured out that if she baked really badly she would get off the hook.It worked, her stuff was truly horrible.
We made this crunchie recipe so often we knew it off-by-heart, and it always made lovely cookies. They are a great snack and they fill a hole in the nicest way if you feel like a slightly sweet snack. So, thanks mom, for teaching us to bake because I know this recipe is a hit in my home, and I'm sure in my brother's as well!
- 240gm margerine
- 2 dessert spoons syrup
- 240 gm flour
- 180 gm sugar
- 150 gm oats
- 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Preheat oven to 170°c. Melt the margerine and sugar together. Mix all dry ingredients together. Pour melted margerine over and mix. Place teaspoonfuls on a baking tray and bake for about 10-15 minutes. Remove when they are golden brown and let them cool. As they cool they will become crunchy. Should make at least thirty cookies.
My youngest went on a swimming trip and parents were asked to each supply a tin of crunchies for the squad to nibble on between races. As they were small children who were racing in an outdoor pool in the middle of winter I thought they would need as much energy as possible. I added a cup of peanuts to my batter to boost the calorie value of each cookie. It worked out well and the kids enjoyed the variation for the normal crunchie.
