ANZAC Biscuits

ANZAC Day is just a few days away, which is a national day of remembrance in New Zealand for the soldiers who lost their lives during WWI, particularly the battle of Gallipoli. These biscuits are iconic in New Zealand for their crunch, and were used during the war to send overseas to the soldiers as they last for a long time. These biscuits are ridiculously easy to make and will be an excellent addition to your biscuit repertoire.

  4. In a separate small bowl, mix the Baking Soda and Boiling Water and add to the melted Butter and Golden Syrup. This will foam up, add to the dry ingredients and mix well
