Anzac biscuits are a really easy and frugal biscuit to make at home, and they are so much nicer than the store bought variety.  They make great lunch box snacks, keep well in an air tight container and freeze really well.  Whenever I make them I make a double batch in order to have plenty to freeze.  You can freeze them either as baked cookies or in raw form in a “cookie log” for future baking.  With this batch I made I baked half, then froze half the mixture in log form. The beauty of freezing cookie logs is that they take up very little freezer space and you can have fresh baked cookies in a flash if you “need” them!
