1. Beat together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and syrup and mix well. Sift the dry ingredients and 4ml salt together and add to the butter mixture. Mix until a soft dough is formed.
2. Roll the dough into small balls and place on a greased baking tray – leave enough room between the biscuits. Bake in a preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
3. Leave the biscuits to cool for a few minutes on the baking tray then transfer them to a metal rack.
