Apricot, Date and Oat Cookies
185 g butter
3 tablespoons golden syrup
3/4 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 1/2 cups raw sugar
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup coconut
11/2 cups flour
1/2 cup diced dried apricots
1/2 cup diced fresh dates (I used 6 large dates)
Put butter, golden syrup in a large saucepan and put on low heat to melt.
Add bicarb soda, the mixture should start to foam
Stir in eggs and flour and mix well. The mixture will be a little sticky. Allow the mixture to firm for ten minutes or so.
Roll heaped teaspoons of mixture into balls and place onto greased tray or use baking paper. Allow room to spread.
Bake 150 deg C for approx 15 minutes or until golden brown.
