Part fairy cake, part flapjack. A recipe.
I’ve had this recipe on a scrappy piece of paper for so long, it is about time I wrote it up properly. Just in case the paper is lost (which has happened a number of times and my heart starts pounding. I kick myself for not having written it elsewhere and promise myself I will as soon as I find it. Then I find it. And I calm down. Then forget to write it up.)
The original recipe is from my mum’s very old Be-Ro flour recipe book. You can still get the Be-Ro book but it no longer includes this recipe. It costs £1.50 and is a bargain.They call the recipe Crunchies but they aren’t *that* crunchie. I don’t know what I’d call them, really. Iced Biscuits will have to do.
This is my adapted recipe anyway. It makes 28/30 biscuits depending on how big you want them. My recipe is in ounces so that’s how I’m giving it you.
- 6 oz butter
- 4oz caster sugar
- 2 tsp golden syrup
- 1 – 2 tsp boiling water
- a dash of vanilla extract
- 6 oz self raising flour
- 3 oz oats
