125 grams of butter
½ cup sugar
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 tablespoon milk
1½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Combine the butter, sugar, golden syrup and milk in a saucepan stirring constantly. Heat until the butter is melted and the mixture is nearly boiling.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool to lukewarm.
Sift the flour and the baking soda together and add them to the cooled mixture. Stir the combined ingredients well.
Roll tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on an oven tray lined with non-stick baking paper, then flatten the balls gently with a floured fork.
Bake the biscuits for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Store in an airtight container.
