Anzac Biscuits with Macadamia Nuts

Rating: Unrated
When the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps landed at Gallipoli on April 25, 1915, a legend was born. On Anzac Day every year, we pay homage, not only to the Anzacs, but to Australians who have fought in all wars. These biscuits are uniquely Australian and this recipe utilizes Macadamia Nuts, another Australian treasure.

Australian Federation Biscuits

Rating: Unrated
This year is the Centenary of Federation of Australia, and this recipe was provided by the great-granddaughter of Henry and Isabella Parkes (your equivalent of a first lady). In Australia, we call them biscuits, rather than cookies, but they are well worth trying.

Rose Pavlova Cakes

Try out these rose-flavored pavlova mini cakes for any celebration or holiday. You can store them in an airtight container for several days (without whipping cream) and decorate them whenever you want.

Anzac Biscuits III

Rating: Unrated
Traditional Australian recipe, handed down from my mother. Originally, these delicious bikkies (biscuits) were lovingly baked and sent in care packages to our soldiers at war. I am an Aussie living in Japan, so I know the substitutions work because I have had to use them!!

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.
