ANZAC Biscuits

ANZAC Biscuits




ANZAC biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army corps established in WW1 where batches were sent to soldiers abroad because the ingredients did not spoil easily. In preparation for ANZAC day on 25 April which is a national day of remembrance and commemoration, I sifted through some old magazines where I found a great recipe for ANZAC biscuits in an old edition of New Idea. I’ve tried and tested the recipe and it seriously delivers a good batch of ANZAC biscuits which still continue to this day to be a popular biscuit all year around, but most importantly they are still revered as a traditional way to mark a solemn day of reflection.
