Recipe- ANZAC biscuits

Print this article


This weekend is ANZAC day and these biscuits are a family favourite.
They don’t have any eggs or milk in them so they keep for a long time without refrigeration, which is why the mothers, wives and other people at home would send them to their loved ones; the soldiers fighting in the war.
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
