These tasty little cookies are so quick and easy you can almost make them while the kettle boils. If you donít have treacle, you can substitute golden syrup or honey but the cookies will not be as rich and chewy.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 15 - 20 servings

100 g softened butter
100g sugar
1 tablespoon treacle
150 g self-raising flour

Cream the butter and sugar
Stir in the treacle
Slowly add the flour, stirring in as you go

Remove from oven and let them sit for a few minutes before transferring to cooler

As an added touch you might like to sprinkle some sugar on top, but these cookies are already sweet enough on their own. Donít worry if they sink while cooling Ė theyíre supposed to. Thatís what gives them their chewiness.
