This easy recipe includes all traditional ingredients and creates delicious, chewy Anzac biscuits.
Anzac biscuits are traditionally enjoyed around Anzac Day which is celebrated on 25 April. The buttery biscuits are associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) that was established during World War I.
These wholesome and long lasting biscuits were sent to the front line by New Zealand and Australian women as a contribution to the war. Today the popular biscuits are still used to help fundraise for the neighbouring countries’ returned services associations.
Anzac Biscuits Tips
- Make sure the wet mixture doesn’t simmer or boil.
- By chilling the dough prior to baking the biscuits hold their shape.
- These biscuits are unlikely to last but you can store them in an airtight container for weeks in a cool place.
- The buttery biscuits are fabulous dunkers. A hot cuppa or glass of milk work well!
