in the kitchen


This morning I made some Anzac biscuits.  This is a good Aussie (Australian) recipe…….oaty, syrupy and crunchy ( is oaty a word)!   I bake them often as they are a favorite in our house.  They are also super easy to make,  so I thought I would share the recipe with you.

Wondering where the name came from……………….?

Get ready for a short history lesson!

Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand  Army Corps and refers to the soldiers who fought in World War I and II . There are some varying opinions as to why the biscuits were given this name; one is that they we sent to the soldiers during the war; another is that they were sold as fund-raisers after the war for returned soldiers.

I’m not sure about the reason for their name, however, I am sure that they are delicious!

If you would like to make some, then here’s the recipe.
