This Anzac Slice is soft and chewy and has all the flavors of an Anzac biscuit. The addition of walnuts however takes this slice to the next level!
With only a week to go until Anzac day I thought that I would share an Anzac Slice recipe. There is a bit of a twist with this Anzac slice though as it also contains walnuts which give it a delicious nutty flavor.
This recipe was cut out of a local newspaper a few years ago and it has become a favorite in our family ever since. It has all the taste of a classic Anzac biscuit but it is made even tastier because of the added walnuts. I must say I am a bit of a fan of walnuts in baking!
These days I prefer to make an Anzac slice rather than a biscuit because it is so easy. Instead of dividing the mixture up to make biscuits you only have to press the whole mixture into a slice tin and then cut it into slices after it is cooked!
If you like Anzac biscuits (or even if you have never tried them) you will love this Nutty Anzac Slice!
