Everyone loves ANZAC biscuits and there are so many variations to the orignal recipe.  This is one that I created using just one pan (because I hate washing dishes), and it is packed full of nuts too.  Now that everyone is home-schooling it is a great time to include more nuts in your diet provided there are no allergies in your family.  If there are, just replace the nuts with seeds like pepitas and...
