Very Nice and adaptable! Used honey instead of golden syrup and worked well. However the end result is too sweet for my liking so next time I will try it with a lot less sugar or just use nuts instead of (sweet) chocolate.

Brilliant recipe - I'd been looking for a decent cookie recipe for a while, only downside is that I've been eating way too many of these now..

I was surprised how yummy these turned out! Overbaked my first batch (had the fan of the oven on, will have to try without the fan or cut down on the baking time) but am looking forward to trying again! Thanks for the great recipe!

just made these in 20 mins flat - really easy to make and exactly how cookies should be - crispy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle - yummy

Brilliant recipe. I've found better cookie recipes but they all take much more work than these do and the results aren't that much better. These were great cookies with minimal effort. I'm temped to stick to this recipe in future.

I've now made a couple of batches, one with honeycomb & toffee pieces and another with milk & white chocolate pieces, both batches were perfect and so easy to make.

Omg, these cookies are SOOOOOO good! The cookies I make never seem to turn out right, but these are so quick and easy, with no fancy ingredients and minimal washing up! Already eaten three of them and they only came out of the oven about ten minutes ago! :D

These are the best cookies I ever made!
Crisp on edge, chewy centre.
Made one batch with nuts and another with mixed fruit. Very sweet, but not unpleasantly so. Could easily cut down on sugar by a quarter, especially fruit ones.
Beware though, they really spread out. May need to shape straight from the oven, or make on xl baking tray or in batches of 5.

WOW! I have tried many a cookie recipes before and they have always turned out cakey in the middle, with a hard biscuit coating around the edge. I just tried this recipe for the first time and they were PERFECT. Well minus 70g of sugar (I put in 30g). I also added chocolate orange chunks and a dash of vanilla essence. Like others have said, you could be fooled into thinking they were fresh from Millies. Except i'll call mine Kimmies!

Awesome recipe!! My girls and I had spent all day spring cleaning and they were desperate for something sweet, but we had no treats in! So I jumped on the net and searched quick cookie recipes and this came up!! Perfect cookies in under half hr,...fab!! We added shredded coconut and mixed fruit mmm!!

For Snesna...I've used castor, granulated, soft light brown, moscavado....basically whatever sugar I've got to hand, (apart from Icing sugar) but find that the browns make a darker, chewier cookie, and are also sweeter, so add less.
Just about to make these yet again....lost count of how many times this is...this time with hazelnut white chocolate.....mmmmmmm :D

I give this recipe a 10 out of 10. It's the very first time i've ever made cookies so was looking for quick and easy, this is certainly that. I never had any syrup so just did without brown sugar for the sugar & choccy chips cut from a choccy bar.

Made 11 cookies and they look incredible, but sadly not allowed to eat them so have to wait until my daughter comes home to get a taste verdict.

Thank you so much!! I can cook lol

This may be a rookie question, but what type of sugar do you use??

Brilliant recipe :) so simple and the cookies taste delicious. I agree with people about the amount of sugar though. Just baked my first batch and safe to say as a diabetic baker, 2 cookies is my limit lol Now going to try with 50g of sugar and adding almonds
