Anzac biscuits (or cookies, as we’d call them in the States) are so important to Australian history because they were one of the main foods that moms and wives baked for their soldiers fighting in Gallipoli in World War I. The biscuits keep well for months, which is why they were so popular. That part of Australian history is so important that there’s even an Anzac day.
Anzac biscuits are heavenly morsels made without eggs, so they’re perfect for those with allergies or vegans (just sub the butter for margarine). This was the first recipe that I came across with unfamiliar ingredients, but even if you’re not in Australia, you can make it work! I’ll show you how I adapted the recipe so that it can be made even without any special ingredients.
