Golden Syrup Cookies

These are some of the tastiest cookies you will ever make, well at least we think so. They are so simple you will want to make them over and over again. With minimal ingredients and mess these are great to make with kids with just some adult supervision for the heating part. The golden syrup gives these cookies a wonderful and unique flavour yet keeping them soft and chewy. These Golden Syrup Cookies will surely be requested by all your friends once they try them!

This recipe makes approx 16 small cookies.  You can scale the recipe up to make more.

The Ingredients:

115g Butter
1tbsp Golden Syrup
2tbsp Boiling Water
1tsp Bicarbonate Soda
65g Desiccated Coconut
100g Caster Sugar

Recommended Equipment:
Sage Appliances Scraper Mixer Pro

The How-To:
Preheat oven to 180c.
In a small saucepan heat the butter and golden syrup together until melted.
In a small bowl combine the boiling water and bicarbonate soda. Mix together well and add to the saucepan.
Stir the mixture well until combined.
Add the rolled oats (use rolled oats for the very best cookies), sugar, coconut and flour to a mixer bowl.
Add the golden syrup mixture into the centre of the bowl and turn the mixer onto a low speed setting.
 On the Sage Appliances Scraper Mixer Pro this is the folding speed setting.
Mix together until all the ingredients are well combined and a cookie dough forms.
Place 4 tablespoons of this mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake in the centre of the oven for 7 mins.
To make the perfect chewy cookies remove from the oven and lift the parchment paper from the edges and carefully drop the baking sheet onto the workbench from a height. This forces the cookies to flatten out. Leave on the parchment paper until slightly cooled and then remove to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
The cookies are still very soft when they come out of the oven but do not worry this is the way they are meant to be.
You’re Done!
