Very easy to make and deeelicious. Have made this twice now. The first time was great. Then I mentioned the recipe to my Mother who said she had a similar recipe, which pressed 2/3rds of mixture into pan, then spread a layer of jam over it and then pressed the remainder of the mixture over the top. Baked for the same amount of time. No need to ice. Results just in from trying this out and it is to die for... Slice is going fast and won't last much longer. Try it!
Such an easy recipe and a hit with my family, who love Anzac biscuits. I left out the choc chips but it is still so moreish. I also iced it with chocolate icing as I didn't have any chocolate on hand to melt!
