Preparing oat-coconut biscuits Cookies ANZAC -Sweet and crunchy oat-coconut biscuits, especially popular in Australia and New Zealand. Its, in fact, age-old, the story is very interesting and romantic. ANZAC cookies originate in 1914-1915 and since then is associated with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (abbreviation - ANZAC), created during the First World War. There are several popular versions of the origin of this delicacy. According to one of them - cookies were invented by the corps soldiers themselves from the food stocks that they had, in order to brighten up the everyday, lean, army ration. On the other (that's where the real romance!), Believe that the creators, or rather the creators of such cookies were loving Australian and New Zealand women who sent parcels to their husbands directly to the front. Due to their qualities, the biscuits carried prolonged transportation and the soldiers ate it fresh. Today ANZAC cookies are produced on an industrial scale, and its popularity is growing day by day. I propose to prepare these sweet cookies by yourself, because everything is very simple. And grateful to you will be satisfied faces of loved ones!
