I was sure I found this recipe on MN but can't find it in recipes now. It is truly the best ever cookie recipe making gorgeous biscuits.
Ingredients 350g self-raising flour Pinch salt 200g caster sugar 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda 125g butter 75g golden syrup 1 egg (beaten) 1 tsp vanilla essence A good handful of your choice of chocolate chips, nuts, etc. Method 1. Sieve the flour salt, sugar and bicarb into a large mixing bowl. 2. Heat the butter and the golden syrup together until melted, and leave to cool slightly. 3. Pour the butter mixture over the dry ingredients, add the egg and the vanilla essence and mix. 4. Add the chocolate chips, nuts, etc. 5. Place small balls of the mixture onto greased baking sheets and flatten slightly with your fingers. 6. Bake in a preheated oven 160C/gas mark 3 for 15-20 minutes until starting to colour 7. They will be very soft when they come out of the oven but will harden as they cool.
