A New Take on Anzac Biscuits
Anzac Biscuits are the kind of classic that never go out of style, but we’ve given them a subtle twist. What sets this recipe apart is the use of lemon zest and Verjuice, adding a unique layer of flavor. The lemon zest cuts through the sweetness with a citrusy note, while Verjuice balances the richness.
The process itself is straightforward. One of the key tips for success here is to simmer the butter, golden syrup, and Verjuice before adding the bicarbonate of soda. This ensures that everything melds together perfectly and contributes to a smoother texture in the final product.
These biscuits are versatile. Enjoy them with your morning coffee, as an afternoon treat, or even crumbled over some vanilla ice cream for an easy dessert.
