1/1 Photo of New Zealand Tararua Biscuits
A Kiwi recipe for our Zaar World Tour. Please understand that 'biscuit' in New Zealand = 'cookie' in the U.S. These biscuits are wholesome, simple to make and they pack and keep well. To keep them fresh for camping trips it pays to pack them in day lots and label accordingly. Be warned: Tararua biscuits can be jaw breakers as they are designed to have little moisture left by the end of cooking!
