Lyle's Golden Syrup Cookies

from ButterYum
makes 18 cookies


  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lyle's golden syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and baking powder, set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat butter, sugar, and golden syrup until melted and smooth; remove from heat and stir in pure vanilla extract.
  3. Add flour mixture and oats and stir well to combine.  
  4. Place cookie dough in an airtight container and chill for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 325F and place rack in the center position.
  6. Line two half sheet pans with silpat liners (parchment doesn't work well for these cookies).
  7. Use a #50 scoop to portion dough, 6 cookies at a time, evenly spaced on sheet pan.. NOTE:  I suggest baking only one tray of cookies at a time, being sure to place chilled dough on room temperature (not hot/warm) sheet trays.  
  8. Bake for 8 minutes; remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.  Store in airtight container.
