Sometimes it's hard to put in words how much I appreciate and respect the sacrifices the Anzacs have made for our country but I think the words from the Ode of Remembrance say it perfectly. No matter how many times I hear these words I'm always so touched.
We will remember them.
Anzac Biscuits were created during World War 1 to send to the Australian and New Zealand troops. There was a shortage of eggs at the time, and they needed foods that would be able to last the long sea voyage - the Anzac biscuit was perfect for this. And don't let that story give you the idea that these biscuits are anything less than delicious, they can be soft and chewy, or more crisp and crunchy depending on your choice. This recipe makes the biscuits how I like them, soft and sweet and very delicious! For those of you who have never tried making, or even tasted Anzac biscuits I advise you to give it a go - you'll find they're very much worth it!
