Crispy ANZAC Biscuits

Having been to Gallipoli, and grown up in a defense force town, ANZAC day has always held a special meaning for my family and me.

Even when living overseas I have always attended the nearest dawn service to pay my respects.

On solem occasions, such as this one, I think it is important to have traditions in place with your children to help them make sense of it. Thats why every ANZAC day we make ANZAC biscuits together - everyone likes them a little different, so we end up making several batches to suit every taste. We have a recipe for chewy (click here) and malty (click here) ANZAC biscuits, and of course these crispy ones

While we do it we make sure we talk about the sacrifices that have been made by those that have come before us.

Lest We Forget.
