Ingredients

  • 1 oz of butter
  • 6 oz of self raising flour
  • 2 oz or more of plain flour (if you need more to roll out)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 2 to 3 table spoons of golden syrup (heaped)

Method

    1. Turn your oven up to 150°C (gas mark 2) and grease a baking tray ready to put the biscuits on. Place to one side.
    2. Place the butter and syrup into a saucepan and heat into a liquid then leave to cool in a safe place.
    3. Once reasonably cool, pour into a glass bowl and add the raising flour, vanilla essence and baking soda.
    4. Place in the fridge for at least an hour to become thicker then take out. Once taken out, sprinkle some plain flour over a flat surface.
    5. Check that the mixture is thick enough to roll, if not, add some plain flour.
    6. Take the mixture out and roll around and knead slightly with fists to stop it sticking, then roll out to about 3 to 5 mm thick and cut into biscuit shapes.
    7. Place the biscuits on the greased tin and bake for about twenty minutes. Take out at the twenty minute mark and check its cooking well, then cook for another ten minutes , supervising the cooking.
    8. Once golden brown, take the biscuits out and cool in the tray until cool enough to place onto a cooling rack until cold, then eat or store in a sealed box. Yum!!!

Sorry, but this is not a good recipe. I followed it exactly (even though I suspected that 1oz of butter wouldn't be enough). The biscuits have just come out of the oven with a doughy texture and a bland flavour.
