ANZAC Blondies

ANZAC Blondies

Makes 24

There are so many reasons to love Blondies and not just because it’s a teatime treat to match my hair! Blondies are white chocolate’s answer to a Brownie and this version is a delicious twist on the good old ANZAC  biscuit. If a blondie and an ANZAC cookie had a cake baby, this would be it!  Not only are these delicious but they’re freezer friendly too!  I’ve updated the recipe to include both the traditional method and the Thermomix conversion!
