During this time of the year I think hand or homemade gifts work well. While they might not be expensive, they’re made with love, which makes them priceless. These are quick and easy to make, they taste good, and they go well with a cup of tea or coffee.
250 g butter/ 2.2 stick of butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon golden syrup
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons mixed spice
Beat the butter and sugar to a cream. Add the egg and the golden syrup, then mix in the dry ingredients. Roll balls about the size of a teaspoon and place on a cookie tray (greased). Flatten with a wet fork. Bake at 180C/350F for 12-15 minutes until they are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container.
