anzac biscuits

Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and anzac day is April 25. Not to generalize, but it is kind of like Memorial Day in the states (not to be confused with Labor Day ;). It marks the day of first major military action by Australia and New Zealand (in WWI, btw that sentence was totally plagiarized from wikipedia).

Anyway anzac day is great for 2 selfish reasons. 1: I get the day off work. 2: anzac biscuits.

These delicious little gems are little more than oats, sugar, butter and coconut. mmmm... I added some sultanas (slightly different from raisins) and chocolate buttons to half. I worked from two different recipes: eating out loud had one up and the australian government did too (I figured they would know what they are talkin' 'bout). There are only very slight differences between the two.
