    breezermom's Note:

    These biscuits are baked for Anzac Day (April 25), a memorial tribute to the soldiers killed in World War I. Anzac is an acronym for the combined Australia and New Zealand Army Corps. Although called a biscuit in Australia and New Zealand, they are actually what Americans would call a cookie. From Better Home and Gardens. Posted for ZWT5.

      This is the first time I have made Anzac biscuits that have not had oats or golden syrup or honey in them but they certainly have a lovely sweet taste from the fruit (I used sultanas and apricots and the almonds) and the hint of spices gave it lovely flavour. I made a half batch and got 29 delightfully small 2 bite size biscuits/cookies which I think would be ideal for a small child's lunch box or nestled in a saucer with a cup of tea or coffee. thank you Breezermom, made for Summer Photo Tag.
