These look delicious, I can't wait to try them! To answer other comments...1/2 cup of butter is equal to 1 stick (1/4 lb).

My dad and I just love the original Anzac cookies, but after making the same thing for awhile, I decided to try chocolate chips, and boy does it taste good. So next time try 1 cup of chocolate chips cookies!!!

found the measurements difficult - how do you measure half a cup of butter? Managed it, but would have preferred recipe to be in grams. Apart from that, biscuits are really lovely.

*cough* Australia AND New Zealand (2011 Rugby World Cup Winners). My Grandfathers also recieved golden syrup tins of ANZAC biscuits which we have every year on ANZAC day. I use brown sugar in stead of white sugar and they are almost caramel. Enjoy :D

Lovely recipe, however, I found that the biscuits started to burn at around 8 minutes. I would definitely recommend that people keep a close eye on them!

Dead easy yet dead gorgeous.

For info - 1 cup = 250ml

Its a bit odd as 'cups' refer to volume but using the conversion above it worked a treat. The biccies didnt take long to disappear.

Recommend these . . . .
