Where did these Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies originate from? Read on…
I was asked recently if I would like to take part in a baking competition (in connection with McCarthy and Stone who build retirement homes), which is celebrating our mothers (as mother’s day is just around the corner) – and the recipes which have been passed down to us by our mum’s.
Of course I wanted to join in. I remember baking with both my mum and my gran (my mum’s mum) when I was young, which really got me started on my baking path.
Mum and I used to bake these particular cookies together. Back in the day though I would have called them biscuits, as cookies were something weird and wonderful from the ‘other side of the pond’.
