Golden Syrup Biscuits

Yesterday was a wet and windy day in Berlin, and we spent the afternoon putting off our trip to the supermarket, however, we had no food in the house. So I stared into my cupboards to try and decide what i could concoct from the ingredients we did have before deciding that biscuits would be the perfect accompaniment to a lazy Saturday afternoon on the sofa. My eye was caught by the large tin of Golden Syrup sitting in the cupboard so I thought I would try something new: Golden Syrup Biscuits, here is my recipe;

Ingredients

  • 125g of Butter
  • 55g of Caster Sugar
  • 180g of Flour
  • 1 Large tbsp of Golden Syrup

 

My Golden Syrup Biscuits still Warm from the Oven

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190
  2. Mix the butter and sugar in a bowl until the mixture is smooth
  3. Begin to stir in the flour in stages through a sive and contiune to mix together thoroughly
  4. At this stage the mixture turns from a paste to a crumbly mixture here you will add the golden syrup before using your hands to create a ball with the mixture
  5. The mixture is too sticky to roll out so pull a chunk of the dough off roll into a ball in your hands and flatten before placing on a baking tray lined with baking paper
  6. Repeat until all of the dough is gone
  7. Put into the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes until golden
  8. Leave to cool for 30 minutes

These biscuits were really delicious but did not last very long as they had a crumbly texture with a sticky after taste that just left your craving another biscuit. They were so quick and simple that another batch could be prepared fairly quickly if more were needed. I prefer making my own biscuits so much more than buying them from the shop now I realise how simple all of the different kinds are.
