Classic crunchies recipe

We would always make cookies with Grandma during the summer break. If not healthy rusks, it was the crumbly crunchie recipe we all like. These traditional crunchies are crumbly and crunchy, and they don’t fall apart in your coffee as rusks do. They are not only fascinating to bake, but they also make an excellent baked present for family and friends. You most likely already have the ingredients on hand, so it’s time to get baking.

Classic crunchies tips

Not only do you have all of the ingredients on hand, but this easy dish is perfect for making with the kids over the summer vacation. The syrup is delicious and binds the mixture together, and if you want a chewy cookie, bake it for a few minutes shorter. Sprinkle with extra coconut when they’re ready to be removed from the oven. They will be done in about 30 minutes, but let them cool before serving with coffee, tea, or as a midnight snack.

If your mother taught you how to bake, here’s a quick reminder on how to make golden delicious traditional crunchies. Summer baking on the sweeter side.
