ANZAC BISCUIT MIX IN A JAR



Take a moment this year on ANZAC Day (April 25) and bake a batch of these traditional Australian biscuits whilst remembering our Diggers. Layer dry ingredients into quart jars for preparing ahead as shown, or decorate as gifts - or fill jars with baked biscuits.  You'll love these crunchy yet chewy biscuits!

Using a clean, dry 4-cup capacity jar, measure the flour into the jar, then add the sugar, then the oats and lastly the coconut. Add the lid, label and date jars. Store in the pantry for up to 3 months.
