Afghan Biscuit Recipe History

The afghan biscuit history is shrouded in rumors and very little evidence in regards to who created it and when..
Here are some of the information we found on Wikipedia

Its resemblance to an Afghan male, where the cookie base represents their skin color, the dark chocolate icing their hair, and the walnut kernel the turban

An Afghan gentleman went to New Zealand and made such an impression on baking day that a biscuit was created in his honor

The name relates to the Second Anglo-Afghan war, which was prominent news during the New Zealand colonial period.
