  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar (or granulated sugar), *plus 2 more if desired
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 tablespoons Lyle's Golden Syrup
  • Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Prepare 2 half sheet pans with parchment or silpat liners.
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a BeaterBlade attachment, cream the butter and granulated sugar.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, vanilla sugar, and salt; add to the stand mixer with the creamed butter/sugar mixture and mix to combine.
  3. Add the golden syrup and mix again, just until combined. 
  4. Divide dough into 4 equal portions; roll each portion into a 12-inch log.
  5. Place two logs on each half sheet pan and flatten slightly.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the logs spread and turn golden brown. *If desired, sprinkle each log with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar halfway through baking.
  7. Remove from oven and allow the cookie logs cool before transferring to a cutting board.
  8. Using a serrated knife, cut each log in half once lengthwise, then width-wise every 1/2-inch or so.
