This is a post I shared over at the Inspiration Cafe
ANZAC stand for the Australian & New Zealand Army Corps, these biscuits were created and baked by the wives and mothers of our "diggers" (The name we call our Aussie soldiers) . They have a long shelf life and were sent as care packages during the first and second world wars.
ANZAC day is the 25th of April, on this day in 1915 the Aussie diggers, many of whom were barely men, landed in Gallopoli in an effort to defeat Turkey. 8000 Aussie diggers lost their lives that day, fighting for the freedom we enjoy today and the remaining men were forced to retreat. However it brought about the birth of Australia, a new federation had come into it's own.
