My husband's fav cookie -- we call them "Hokey Pokey Biscuits"

Top Review by Felicity L.

I made these with my little girl, very simple to make with store cupboard ingredients on a rainy afternoon! The recipe made 10 decent size cookies, the only thing I did differently was my little girl added a bit more than a tablespoon of golden syrup (more like 3!) and because I knew they would spread out in cooking I placed the rolled balls on a greased tray then when still warm cut out with a cutter so they looked neater!
