I keep seeing Anzac biscuits in the store and have been intrigued to find out what they taste like. I think i’ll have to try a couple recipes myself to find out! They look good!

What a great idea! My Mom’s best friend’s son just left for Iraq a few weeks ago, so we may have to do something similar.

Joe, Cooking Light also has an ANZAC recipe. Ms. Chevious pointed it out to me yesterday, so we should try it.Jeff, that would be cool if you adopted your mom’s best friend’s son. If I can get my act together and send cookies to Iraq, I’ll post responses from the soldiers.

This reminds me, I’ve got a step-cousin (if there is such a thing) that was recently sent to Saudi Arabia. I’ve been meaning to bake up a whole mess of stuff to send – these look like a perfect addition!

Thanks for the recipe! I made them last night, and gave you a shout-out on my site. Very yummy!

Hi Randi,I don’t own the book. I pretend the copy residing on the shelves of the Austin Public Library belongs to me and that the library employees are its nannies/guardians. I could steal the book and pay less for it than if I were to buy it used on Amazon, but I’m not a real Abbie Hoffman follower so I don’t resort to those tactics.

have you had that cookbook for a long time? Its out of print and its so expensive to get it used.
