  • 125 g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp treacle
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tbsp milk

  • Pour hot mixture on to dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly. Leave on one side for 30 minutes or until firm.
  • Break off 18 pieces of mixture and roll into walnut sized balls.

Do watch your oven temperature, as ovens can be slightly different and the high sugar content means that these cookies may burn around the edges if the oven is too hot.
