Butterscotch cookies

Firstly apologies for the long delay for the long break between posts (I see quite a few of you have been checking in!:) ). I have been away on holiday and have started full time work so it’s probably going to be a bit slow on the blogging (and baking) front until I adapt to my new more demanding schedule. But for now here are some yummy cookies. These cookies are from Sainsbury’s baking book collection. They only require a few ingredients and are very easy and quick to make. They are very buttery and very sweet. Crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle and dotted with chewy bits of butterscotch pieces. They are easy to over bake so best to check on them early. Also use really good quality parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet to stop the butterscotch from sticking to the paper…..


makes 14:
100g unsalted butter
100g Sainsbury's Fairtrade light brown sugar
1 tablesppon golden syrup
150g plain flour,sifted
50g mini butterscotch chips

1.preheat oven to 180 degrees , 
line a baking tray with parchment

2.using an electric hand mixer beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.Add golden syrup and beat for one minute. Add the flour and butterscotch chips and beat with wooden spoon until soft dough forms

3.lightly dust your hands with flour  and divide dough into 14 balls.flatten only slightly with palm of your hand. place on baking tray leaving space inbetween for them to spread out. Bake for 12-15 mins until lightly golden at edges (check around 8 minutes though)

4. remove from oven and cool on wire rack.
