I am horrified to know that I have not posted these cookies before. You know there are some recipes that you thought you have (because u frequently make them?) but actually never did?
Well, it happened to me!
I came to know about Anzac Cookies in my first year in Australia. I learned that these are the cookies wives used to make to send overseas to their husbands who were in battle (WW1). I learned how they experimented with “cheap” ingredients but yet coming up with something that will last the months and months of shipping until the cookies reach their destination.
Nowadays though, I just like the golden crunch of these cookies. I used to make them without coconut. Especially when I was single. But have since re introduce coconut in these cookies again.
