Anzac Biscuits

A biscuit named after the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) established in World War I, which may or may not have been sent to men fighting in the war by the womenfolk back home. Either way they keep very well in a biscuit tin. Also the mixture keeps for ages, so can be made in advance if you want an activity to do with the kids.
