On the 25th of April each year on Anzac Day, all of Australia honours and remembers our men and women who served and lost their lives in military and peacekeeping service. If you’re joining a Dawn Service, why not pack some Anzac biscuits to share at the gunfire breakfast or picnic afterwards. Or just make them to enjoy at home!
These hardtack army biscuits have been part not only of the Anzac tradition but also of every Aussie household, with Anzac biscuits recipes handed down from generation to generation in every family. Anzac biscuits are enjoyed all-year round, of course, but take on special meaning on Anzac Day. (They are quite popular for fundraisers, too!)
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
This particular Anzac biscuits recipe came from one of our team members at Kitchen Warehouse North Lakes where they are serving these delicious biscuits today to commemorate Anzac Day.
