Anzac Biscuits

Rated as 4.14 out of 5 Stars

"This is the kiwi version of this. The Edmonds top 20. These biscuits were baked during the first world war for the soldiers. There are no eggs in these biscuits and use ingredients we usually have in the pantry. Golden syrup can be replaced by treacle."

I've made this recipe a few times now and I love it. The batter is a bit loose so be sure to press each cookie down slightly just to even it out. I've used chocolate chips or butterscotch chips ...

If you prefer a more chewy biscuit like me, substitute the white sugar for brown sugar. Great recipie!

If I had been baking Florentines I would have been thrilled! these cookies spread out so much and were thin as pancakes. What did I do wrong? Double checked the recipe several times -I think too...

Biscuits came out very greasy. Will try a little more flour next time, and brown sugar instead of white sugar.
