How to Bake ANZAC Cookies

Lisa & Talia - CookingWithTalia.comBiscuits (cookies) are one of my favourite things to bake and Anzac biscuits have a pretty cool story attached to them!

Anzac biscuits are linked with the Australian & New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) going back to World War 1!  The biscuits were sent to soldiers fighting overseas by their wives and mothers because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits lasted for ages which was needed back then as they were transported by sea on a navy ship.

I like making these because they are easy and yummy and smell soooo good when they are cooking!

I also like taking one to school in my lunchbox!
