Does anybody know if I could freeze this dough in pieces and put them straight in the oven from frozen? I would make them all at once but not sure how long they will last. There's only two of us in the house - I wouldn't want them going bad!

Never heard of anzac biscuits before until an Aussie colleague mentioned about them on Australia Day. I had all the ingredients in the cupboard already - always a bonus! And butter doesnt have to be soft, hooray! So easy and deliciously moorish!! You really have to stop yourself from eating 5 in a row! I didnt but my husband did :) They are just like hobnobs so I will never need to buy them again!! Very easily doubled, made 2 batches to take into work and they were gone very quickly! I used 80g sugar in second batch and were just as good as first batch with 100g. Very easy recipe to adapt... will definitely try adding raisins, cranberries, etc next time!!!

Delicious! Very sweet though, so will use less sugar next time. I used brown sugar which gave them a lovely rich flavour and added raisins which also worked well.

I used soft brown sugar and it gave a much better flavour and texture and my Aussie friend assured me that's the way her Grandma made them :)

This is the first time I've reviewed anything on this website but felt I had to as these are SO easy and SO delicious, even without improvements/modifications. I can't see myself buying supermarket biscuits ever again!

Some of the easiest and tastiest biscuits I've had. Just lovely. Don't make the biscuits too big - the edges get a little dry if they need a lot of time to spread (a tbsp is a good size, I think). It's also helpful to flatten a little before popping them in the oven.

Thought these biscuits were delicious, especially when they had just come out of the oven. Very easy to make.
