In honor of Anzac Day, which is on April 25, I decided to make Anzac biscuits! Anzac (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day is a national holiday in Australia and New Zealand when soldiers from both countries who died in war are remembered for their military service.
During World War I, it was said that families and friends of the Anzacs made a firmer version of modern-day Anzac biscuits (biscuits: cookies to Americans) to ship to them. These biscuits were specifically made for the soldiers because they had a long shelf life, could be transported easily on boats, and were filling.
The recipe from Butter Baking that I used to make these biscuits are delicious and super quick to make! You probably have most, if not all, of the ingredients already in your pantry too. These cookies are made with: flour, rolled oats, coconut, sugar, butter, honey, salt, baking soda, and boiling water. These might be the easiest cookies you ever make!
