These cookies bring me back to my Girl Guides days, when one of the requirements for camp was to bring three dozen sturdy cookies along for snack times. There were always some of these, along with Ranger cookies, oatmeal raisin, and good old chocolate chip. I’ve made them myself on a number of occasions, but not for many years.
That’s a shame, because these cookies are the perfect cookie jar cookies – they never get tooth-breakingly hard or deplorably dry and they’re just as good for a snack on a hike as they are for an unfussy dessert.
This version of the cookie (or biscuit, as they’re called in Australia and New Zealand) is particularly special for the Tuesdays with Dorie crowd, because it was provided to Dorie by one of our own, Mardi of eat. live. travel. write. (Mardi is also about to join the ranks of cookbook authors, with a cookbook due to come out in Fall, 2018.)
She made hers to mark ANZAC Day, which takes place on April 25th. If you’d like to try your hand at these this year, you can pick up a copy of Dorie’s Cookies, or try Mardi’s version.
April’s Dorie’s Cookies goodness can be found here at Tuesdays with Dorie.

They look PERFECT! I didn’t realise they were in the Girl Guide lineup! Yay for ANZAC biscuits (and thanks for the shoutout! xo)
This was a new cookie for me but so glad I tried it. These were a hit with my family.
Anzacs are delish, aren’t they. Yours look really good, and you are right – they are a great sturdy snack.
Mmm. Anzacs are some of the most “more-ish” cookies out there!
Those look delicious! Im allergic to oats. Trying to think of a substitution.
Thanks, Peggy! I bet quinoa flakes would work perfectly.
