Delicious mouthwatering gluten free and dairy free ANZAC biscuits  with red poppy flower

The ANZAC (Australia & New Zealand Army Corp) biscuit is a national delicacy dating back to the first world war. It's claimed that these golden cookies were sent abroad in care packages to troops fighting in the trenches by wives and women's groups, as the ingredients did not spoil during naval transportation.

Traditional recipes such as these should not be altered, however people who are intolerant to gluten and dairy also deserve to enjoy this trans-Tasman treat without fear of any undesirable repercussions. So with all due respect, only the minor essential changes have been made to this classic recipe.
