  1. Step 1

    Line a large baking sheet, or two medium baking sheets, with baking parchment. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
  2. Step 2

    Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together in a pan. Mix the bicarb with 2 tbsp boiling water, and stir into the sugar and butter mixture. Remove from the heat, then stir in the remaining ingredients with a pinch of salt, to make a stiff dough.
  3. Step 3

    Using two spoons, put heaped tablespoons of the mixture onto the prepared tray, well spaced apart as they'll spread quite a lot.
  4. Step 4

    Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and crisp – 8 minutes for chewy biscuits and 10 minutes for crisper biscuits with a slight snap. Leave to cool on the trays until they firm up.
