I lived in Australia for a few years. Very good, simple cookie.
INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):
- 2 1/8 cups rolled oats
- 5/8 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 tablespoon golden syrup
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 4 teaspoons boiling water
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
In a large bowl, combine the oats, sugar, flour. Melt and add butter or margarine. Add golden syrup. Lastly, add the baking soda dissolved in the boiling water. Stir the dough until everything is completely mixed together.
Place spoonfuls of mixture onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15-20 minutes, or until done.
