Anzac Cookies

Beth Pierce


These delectable Anzac Cookies are oatmeal coconut cookies with crispy edges and chewy centers. They are perfect milk and coffee dunking cookies and one of my all time favorites. I love to include them on my cookie serving trays

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
