, see Note
Homemade Golden Syrup
(click link for the recipe - it's super easy to make!)
quality pure vanilla extract
quality pure almond extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all the dry ingredients (except for the baking soda) in a mixing bowl.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the golden syrup. Add the vanilla and almond extracts. Stir the baking soda into the boiling water and then add to the butter mixture.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine.
Scoop out 1-inch balls and place them 3 inches apart on a nonstick cookie sheet (cookies will spread - they are thin and chewy). Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
Let sit for 3-4 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Golden Syrup has a very distinct taste for which there is no adequate substitute. Corn syrup and molasses are
the same thing.
