Aussie Cooking! July 20

Today we baked some Australian cookies, ANZAC Biscuits. These tasty treats are very quick and easy to make, so we baked two batches of cookies!

Aya and Sua decided to get creative with their biscuits by sprinkling the mixture with ground coffee and then cooking them in the sandwich press… They insist that the biscuits were just as delicious with this method of cooking!

The rest of the cookies were baked in the oven and came out perfectly. Needless to say, there are no cookies left!
