  • 250 g butter, at room temperature
  • 125 ml sugar
  • 15 ml golden syrup
  • 15 ml instant coffee dissolved in 10ml hot water

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line two large baking sheets with baking paper and grease with nonstick spray.


Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the golden syrup, coffee and milk mixture and beat until well combined.

2 Sift the flour and salt over the butter mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until a dough forms. Cover with clingfilm and chill for at least 15 minutes.

3 Roll the dough into walnut-size balls. Arrange on the prepared baking sheets and use your fingers or a fork to flatten.

4 Bake for 10 -12 minutes or until golden brown and done. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


Heat the ingredients in a saucepan, stirring continuously until all the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
