Old recipe makes the best bis­cuits

Havelock North Village Press - - Omeliving -

AHave­lock North home baker will have her prize-win­ning Anzac bis­cuits made com­mer­cially with pro­ceeds go­ing to the RSA.

Wendy Read­ing from Have­lock North was crowned Best Anzac Bis­cuit Baker in the Bay by ra­dio sta­tion The Breeze.

“I was so sur­prised that my old recipe that I have used for years took out the best Anzac bis­cuit in the Bay,” said Wendy.

“I only de­cided on the morn­ing to do some bak­ing so it was in­cred­i­bly ex­cit­ing to find out I had won and it wasn’t just my chil­dren that loved my Anzac bic­cies”.

First prize for Wendy was a Mag­imix food pro­ces­sor from To­tal Food Equip­ment, and the hon­our of hav­ing the bis­cuits made at Bay Espresso cafes and sold lo­cally to raise money for RSA.

Bay Espresso owner Chris Jarvis said it was such a good op­por­tu­nity for his busi­ness to show its re­spect to the An­zacs and raise money lo­cally for the RSA.

“Wendy’s en­try was a clear leader and af­ter tak­ing the first bite I knew it was a bis­cuit that would sell well in our stores as we try and make as much money as we can for the RSA.”

The bis­cuits re­tail for $2.50 each with $1.50 of the sale go­ing di­rectly to the RSA.

Judges and an RSA spokesman de­scribed Wendy’s win­ning bis­cuit as tast­ing “just like his mother used to make”.

The bis­cuits are avail­able for pur­chase now through­out Bay Espresso stores un­til Anzac week­end.
