While browsing through Aparna's My Diverse Kitchen, i got hooked to this crunchy and easy Anzac biscuits..Immediately i tried them out sterday evening for our snacks..This ANZAC biscuits have a beautiful story and there were many versions regarding the origin of this biscuits..This ANZAC Biscuits are a sweet biscuit popular in Australia and New Zealand, made using rolled oats, flour, coconut, sugar, butter, golden syrup, bicarbonate of soda and boiling water. Anzac biscuits have long been associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I.It has been said that the biscuits were sent by wives to soldiers abroad because the ingredients do not spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation.. Today, ANZAC Biscuits are manufactured commercially for retail sale and are popular in Australia and New Zealand...I really wanted to make this biscuits since its goes for very easy ingredients and as Aparna told i dont have neither corn syrup nor golden syrup so i followed exactly as she went for honey and this biscuits turns prefect golden, crunchy outer and chewy inner, u can check Aparna's ANZAC biscuits here..We enjoyed having along with a cup of coffee and we loved it..This ANZAC biscuits goes directly to Kid's Menu hosted by Neha..
