Anzac Biscuits

The 25th April is known worldwide as ANZAC Day, and is the day when the first military action taken in the First World War by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps is recognised and honoured.

I was surfing the net looking for a new recipe and came across the Joy the Baker website. She has some gorgeous looking food on her blog, and this was one of the recipes she had posted. I believe it originally came from the Epicurious website. I was initially intimidated by the thought of baking biscotti, but believe me, they are much easier than you think they would be!
