Anzac Biscuits

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by kitka9

These biscuits (cookies in America) are called Anzacs because they were baked by Australian women and sent to their ANZAC soldier sons/husbands serving in Europe and Middle east during WW I. It was more like 2 months before they were received back then, so they certainly do travel well! :-) ** Please note that 1 Australian Tablespoon = 20 mls whereas in most others countries it = 15 mls.

Sorry but this recipe is awful. Have made Anzacs before and yes the mix is crumbly, but this mix would not bind at all and biscuits had poor texture and average taste.
