After a few weeks off for summer travel, we are starting to get things rolling again here in the Oui, Chef kitchen. To celebrate Arthas and Boris' return from their trip to Australia I decided to whip up a batch of these deliciously "Down Under" ANZAC Biscuits.
Why the funny name?
Because ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corps, a WWI fighting corps after which the biscuits (cookies) are named. It turns out they rose to fame because their ingredients (notably a lack of eggs) allowed them to travel well when shipped from home to soldiers on deployments in WWI. Of course, their fame might be due to the fact that they are dead simple to make and are an alluring blend of sweet, salt and crunch.
