ANZAC Biscuits

ANZAC biscuits are Australia’s favourite biscuits. They were first made by the women at home during World War 1, for the soldiers who were overseas. They can be baked to be crunchy or chewy, and even in our house, where they are very popular, opinions are divided as to which way they’re best!

I hope you will enjoy them! 😀
