    Easy to make and tasted good, though a little on the sweet side.  -  30 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good recipe. I'm an expat Aussie living in the US, and miss Anzac biscuits. FYI, don't let the name fool you. A biscuit is the UK/Australian term for "cookie".  -  05 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    these turned out shaped more like cookies than biscuits, but they were delicious! I cut down on the sugar and they were still plenty sweet enough. I would make again.  -  26 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
