Had absolutely no idea of what 'Anzac' cookies were when I decided to make this recipe, but curiousity won out & . . . VERY NICE COOKIES, easy to make & tasty, too, what with the coconut & sunflower seeds & 'golden' raisins ~ Loved the crunch without the entire cookie being dry! Certainly worth making again!
