Sometimes you don’t want to muck around making the world’s best chocolate chip cookies. Because biscuits like that involve creaming the sugar and butter for a rather long time. Sometimes you just want a quick mix biscuit recipe that you can whip up in a storm.
This is that recipe.
It will take you 5 minutes to get the mix together, which is quicker than it would take you to buy a packet of biscuits at the checkout.
Quick mix cookies
100g of butter
½ cup of raw caster sugar
1 tbsp of golden syrup
1½ cups self raising flour
1 cup of ‘extras’ to add to your biscuits (I used choc chips, see notes below)
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper or grease well.
Mix the butter and sugar together then stir in the golden syrup.
Add flour and mix. Then gently fold through whatever you are adding to your biscuits (here I added chocolate chips).
Scoop dessert spoon sized blobs onto the baking tray – no need to flatten them or shape them.
Put in the preheated oven for around 12-15 minutes.

- ‘Extras’ could be chocolate chips, sultanas or other dried fruits, peanuts, sprinkles, sunflower seeds, pepitas, oats
- You can skip the extras and jazz up the recipe using a pinch of nutmeg, cinnamon or ground ginger
