‘Anzac’ stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corp. These cookies are part of New Zealand and Australia’s wartime history. Wives would use their rations to bake these delicious cookies, sending them by sea to their homesick hubbies. They do keep for ages in an airtight container. We have sexed them up with the addition of cranberries, pumpkin seeds and dried apricots.
Split the dough into eight evenly sized balls. Roll each one in your hands and pat down to make a cookie shape. Place, well-spaced, on your prepared trays.
It is compulsory to steal one while warm.
