ANZAC Biscuits

PrintFriendly

I am skipping my usual “test it out tuesday” posting this week.

This year is going to quickly, I just can’t keep up. I was not at all prepared for ANZAC day this year. If I was, I would have posted about these cookies last thursday . . .

For those of you who don’t know,  Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

Historically, it is said that these biscuits were sent to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil very easily. Also they keep well during naval transportation.

These ANZAC biscuits are, in my humble opinion, the best I have ever tasted.

They are crunchy on the edges but so soft in the centre.

The combination of oats, golden syrup, coconut and of course the butter are simply a match made in heaven.

Bake these cookies, take them to your ANZAC day BBQ, if you have no plans  . . . make them anyway, take some time to remember the diggers who served, fought and were lost on this day all those years ago. Lest we forget
