ANZAC Hemp Biscuits

ANZAC Hemp Biscuits

Cook Time: 12 mins

There are conflicting stories told as to why Anzac biscuits became so popular. One story suggests that biscuits were sent by wives and women’s groups to soldiers abroad since the ingredients didn’t spoil easily and the biscuits remained fresh despite shipping. Another story says that they were baked by Australians and Kiwis in order to raise funds for the war. There is evidence to suggest that indeed soldiers were sent homemade biscuits during World War I, and history points to the Anzac biscuit recipe. Both stories are precious and important to remember those difficult times. We've recreated these delicious historical treats for you to try... ANZAC biscuits with a hemp seed twist … Enjoy!
