Anzac Biscuits (Cookies)

July 5, 2009


Anzac Biscuits have been on my to-bake list for the longest time. These cookies are traditionally made in Australian and New Zealand on Anzac Day, April 25. This holiday honors the memory of the soldiers in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzac) who fought in the WWI battle of Gallipoli.

If you don’t know the tragic history of this battle, I highly recommend the 1981 movie by Peter Weir. Although, according to Wikipedia, it contains historical inaccuracies, Gallipoli is a great movie.
