From the Womans Weekly's 'Sweet old fashioned favourites' cookbook, these are cute and very morish- think of a small round brown-sugar coloured shortbread with no decoration bar the imprint of fork tines.
No photos I afraid, our Canon A70 camera has completely given up the ghost. It has been slowing packing it in over the last few months, the LCD occasionally showing strange purple-black lines which would disappear with a gentle tap. A bit of a web search showed it was a very common failing of these cameras, however after a visit to the service centre, Canon refused to admit it is a flaw in the camera. We've yet to work out what non-Canon camera will grace our home next.
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tbs golden syrup
1 1/4 cups self raising flour
Beat the butter, vanilla essence, sugar and golden syrup until light and fluffy. Stir in flour. Roll into about 40 balls, each of approximately 2 teaspoons of mixture (or go larger or small as suits). Bake in a slow oven for about 30 minutes or until firm.
