How could you not love an ANZAC bikkie! Such an easy recipe, that makes such the perfect biscuit to serve with coffee or tea. This recipe comes out so well and the biscuits were just right for this family ... not too hard and not too soft! So next time I swing the billy, I am going to make sure I have some of these beauties on hand! We all loved them here Pat!
