• Add the diced butter and mix until a crumb texture
• Add the sugar
• Once all of the above is combined, add the egg and golden syrup
• Mix until a dough is formed
• Roll the dough to a thickness of 5mm
• Use biscuit cutters or a paper pattern to cut into the desired shape
• Place the biscuits on a non-stick mat, or parchment paper and bake on the middle shelf for 12-15 minutes
• Bake until the biscuits maintain their shape when touched and are golden in colour
• Cool completely before icing
