Delicious ANZAC Biscuits

ANZAC biscuits were traditionally made by women on the home front and sent to their soldiers in Gallipoli. "Soliders’ Biscuits" originally contained just flour, sugar, milk powder and water, these simple biscuits were made to endure the journey at sea. Now they're more of a treat with the addition of butter, golden syrup and desiccated coconut.
