As an Aussie, I have made ANZAC biscuits often. This recipe is a little different to the one my mother had, but it is very good. Fairly easy to make and the instructions are clear. Cook and enjoy like I did.

This recipe is drier than other ANZAC recipes I use and I had to add a tiny bit more water. Also sweeter than some of the other recipes. Very nice though.
