Homemade Syrup Cookies

11 May 2014

Aloha! Today I thought I'd share with you a recipe I came up and adapted myself to create 'syrup cookies' These are really nice, soft, sweet cookies that are super easy to make, so lets begin!

(Silly me got out plain flour not self-raising flour. Note you should use self-raising flour instead
 of plain as this will help your cookies to be light and chewy)

You will need: 
Glass bowl (large enough to easily stir your cookie dough well)
Baking tray
Wooden spoon
75g (30z) soft margarine/butter
75g(3oz) caster sugar
100g (4oz) self-raising flour
2 or 3 tablespoons golden syrup

1. Preheat your oven to 180°
2. Grease your baking tray using a towel/paper towel with a small amount of the margarine.
3. Measure out and mix your margarine and sugar in the glass bowl until they're light and fluffy

4. Gradually stir and seive in the flour on top of the sugar and margarine. Then add 2/3 tablespoons of syrup (depending how sweet you would like your cookies) and stir well. At this point I also find it useful to knead the dough with my hands to make sure it has all mixed well.

5. Put 8-10 small 'blobs' of the mixture onto the baking tray (accuracy is not too important) then bake for 15-20 minutes.

6. leave to cool for 2-3 minutes before moving to the wire rack to cool.

7. Enjoy your yummy syrup cookies!

It's really that simple! I love making these cookies when I can't make any cakes/cupcakes because you don't need any eggs!

Do you have any homemade recipes? Have you tried cookies similar to this? What did you think?
