Anzac Biscuits

It’s that time of year, Anzac Day is just around the corner (25 April). This is a trusty Women’s Weekly recipe, yep, the one I’ve been making since 1985 or some such nonsense. There’d be photos but I’ve made two batches in the last two days and the boys scarf them before I can get the shot.
