    Classic recipe. The mixture made 45 Oreo sized biscuits. I took them out at 14 minutes because they were small-ish and my oven is hotter. Not too soft, not too hard, just right. Will make again.  -  10 Apr 2011


    Yes these are the Anzac bickies. I made hundreds of then when our troups were in Est. Timor and sent them over via my late husband( Navy). Thank you for putting this recipe on site.  -  11 Apr 2010


    I liked the idea of melting the butter and the syrup together, easier to mix with the dry ingredients. I used my tablespoon measure and was able to get 26 great size biscuits. Thanks for the recipe.  -  03 Sep 2015
