Anzac Slice

From WWII to my kitchen table. This a healthy, wholesome nibble when you are looking for something to fill that four o’clock spot. Anzac slices originated during the second world war. They were sent with the Australian and Nieu-Zealand soldiers (ANZAC forces) to the front. There is no need to take out your electric mixer, a wooden spoon and a thrifty forearm will do.
