What a special and proud day to be Australian. A day where we all come together as a nation to honour and remember all of those incredible Australian men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
We all celebrate Anzac Day in our own way… whether that be attending a dawn service or ex-servicemen march, wearing a sprig of rosemary as a symbol of that found on Gallipoli peninsula or just sharing a beer at the RSL amongst family, friends and local hero’s. It is a special day of remembrance and celebration.
My tradition on Anzac Day is to bake (surprise surprise!) a fresh batch of warm chewy Anzac Biscuits. I love the history they have as being a gift made by loved ones and sent to the soldiers fighting during World War One. They are unique, iconically Australian and 100 years on they are still god dam delicious!!
I tend to pick a different recipe every year in search of the perfect Anzac biscuit (I am still searching and will let you know when I find it) This year I also made a variation on tradition and sandwiched a few with a little chocolate icing to make little mini Anzac Kingstons… They are very yummy and the perfect companion for a cup of tea.
So tell me beautiful people how do you honour Anzac Day?… Oh and… if any one has the perfect Anzac biscuit recipes out there, I would very much appreciate it!!
Lots of Love
