It has been so long since I last posted a recipe, I just don't know where the year is going!!! I have a little catching up to do. I haven't been doing a lot of cooking, well cooking yes, but trying out new recipes or making cooking anything really inspiring or noteworthy, no. I have decided to go away from the "step by step" photography for my blog. I will on occasion do it, but generally this will just be the photos of the end result and the recipe, along with a little of my rambling on of course lol. I made this decision primarily because I am just too lazy and also because my camera isn't that great and I found myself taking ages to get a decent photo, particularly when trying to photograph flour/sugar, batters etc, so it has been put in the too hard basket and I will leave that for the professional bloggers/photographers of this world lol.
Anyway, back to my Anzac Biscuits. Anything Anzac is Buddha's favourite sweet treat. He loves Anzac biscuits, slices and cakes. Usually I whip up a batch of Anzac Slice because it is so quick and easy. I don't make biscuits that often because they take so much more time, especially in my oven where I can only really use one shelf for baking as the lower shelves will result in burnt offerings!
But this time I had a "new to me" recipe for these biscuits and, well a new recipe just has to be tried out using the recipe for the purpose it was designed for I think. I couldn't make this into a slice, it had to start out as biscuits!
They were yummy too. This batch didn't last long in my house,,,,,even the batch that were a little over cooked got eaten, that always means they must have been good!!
