Mrs Simkins’ Anzac Biscuits
During WW1, relatives of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, baked these delicious and energy-giving biscuits, named in their honour, and sent them to the troops fighting in Gallipoli. Conditions in the Turkish region were desperate with intense heat, plagues of flies and disease. It is to be hoped the biscuits travelled well and gave the troops some small comfort.
The biscuits have stood the test of time and are just as delicious today: perfect as a heartening bite with a strong cup of Clipper Fair Trade Everyday tea.
