Macadamia Anzac biscuits

Everyone loves an Anzac biscuit. Next time you whip up a batch, try this version and discover the magic that macadamias can bring. Not only are they an Australian ingredient, they also add a texture like nothing else, and that unique creamy crunch gets even better once they’re baked. If you’re keen to explore indigenous Australian ingredients further, try the wattleseed version of this recipe. It might just be a new Australian classic.
