The ultimate weekend treat- Anzac Cookies

Getting over the flu this week I have kept things really simple. I got out the sewing machine yesterday and finished the first layer of lattice stitching of the Winters Nest quilt. It took much of the afternoon between making play dough monsters and getting Poppy's lunch organised. After Poppy's sat morning swimming class we are driving over to Nana's for a play date with Poppy's cousins and to lay out the quilt on her lounge room floor and tape the next layer of lattice so l can finish it. We just don't have the floor space. It felt wonderful having Poppy playing by my side while l created.
This morning l realised l have no foodie treats in the house and the weekend is fast approaching. Poppy wanted to do something fun so l thought great- a bake up. But with few ingredients in the cupboards of the baking variety l went for a family favourite. Who doesn't remember growing up and sitting down with a glass of milk and an Anzac cookie after school or on the weekends after a bike ride, a game of tag or a game of street cricket.
Poppy got out her apron and I prepared all the ingredients. I doubled the recipe to make sure there was enough for a couple of days and here we are. A full cookie jar just ready for the weekend's activities and all hungry mouths to feed.
