Traditional Anzac Biscuits are a fun, simple and delicious biscuit to make and eat.

Kids may need adult supervision as it requires hot liquids. These are the biscuits that have a steep history in Australian tradition.

  3. Put the butter and syrup in a small saucepan and melt over low heat.

  4. Combine the bicarb and the hot water and add to the butter mixture.  Stir into the dry ingredients.

  5. Place tablespoons of the mixture on a greased baking tray allowing plenty of room for spreading.

  7. Transfer the Anzac biscuits to a wire rack to cool.
