A few weeks ago a friend of mine was at my house and we were talking about food (one of my favorite topics!) She told me that I should start posting recipes for some of the things that I make. I always think about it, and then never do. But in honor of my British friend who grew up in India, is married to an Australian, and now lives in Indonesia, I’m posting a recipe. Today is Anzac Day, a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, a day similar to our Memorial Day. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. So Debs, this is for you!
I had my first Anzac biscuits when we were living in India. We served in a British school that had staff from the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, America, and more. I loved the truly international feel to everything we did. I also learned that Americans, the British, and Australians are separated by a common language!
Let’s start with the word biscuit. It means cookie. I remember trying to explain to my British friends what a biscuit is and even made a few batches for them. “Oh, they’re like scones!”
biscuits cookies are some of my favorite. I love oats and I love coconut, so it was pretty much love at first bite.
