  • Combine the butter, honey and golden syrup in a saucepan. Cook mixture over medium heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and ingredients are blended. Stir in the baking soda, and remove from the heat.

  • Measure the flour and sugar into a mixing bowl and stir to blend. Pour the butter mixture into the bowl with the flour, and stir until evenly blended. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, and place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

These cookies are awesome I did find when i baked them for the listed time they did not seem cooked so i cooked them for longer however that was NOT a good idea you must pull them out after 12 minutes and let them sit for about 5-10 minutes and they will be perfect! Read More

I didn't like this recipe at all. It's prett much pure sugar - golden syrup sugar & honey - with just a little buter flour etc.. to make it bakeable. Anyway way too sweet for me but the teenage boys I served them to seemed to like them. Read More

It was too sweet even after cutting the sugar by half. The batter was too soft to roll so had to add another cup of flour. Instead of snap it turn into a cookie. Still fragrant n crunchy though. Easy to make too. Read More
