100g light brown sugar

125ml golden syrup

80ml strong coffee

3ml vanilla essence

  • Cream butter and sugar together. Add the syrup and beat well. Add the coffee and essence.
  • Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda together. Add to butter mixture and mix well. Press the dough through a cookie maker or roll into teaspoon-sized balls and place onto greased baking trays, leaving enough space for spreading. Press down lightly with a fork.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 160°C for about 15 mins. Turn out onto wire racks to cool.
  • For the filling: Mix all ingredients together. Fill two cookies at a time with filling, if preferred.
