The Anzac Biscuit...Yummy!!! Yummy
We have learnt lots of information about the Anzac Biscuits and how to make them.
The ANZAC Biscuit*
The ANZACs were WWI soldiers from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
The Crunchy ANZAC Biscuit was made by women on the home front and sent across the sea to their soldiers.
Originally named "Soliders’ Biscuits" and containing just flour, sugar, milk powder and water, these simple biscuits were made to endure the journey at sea.
Now the biscuits are more of a treat with the addition of butter, golden syrup and desiccated coconut.
ANZAC Day is a national holiday in Australia and New Zealand celebrated annually on April 25.
*In Australia and New Zealand cookies are called "biscuits".
