Sift the dry ingredients and add the sugar.  In a small saucepan melt the butter (if desired you can brown it slightly by letting it bubble for a short time, this will give your biscuits a nutty taste).  Add the syrup to the warm butter and heat through.

Add the syrup mixture to the dry ingredients and mix to form a stiff dough.  Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions, and roll these into balls.  Space them well on a greased cookie sheet.  Press down with a fork and sprinkle a little extra sugar on top of each cookie.

Bake at 180°C for about 10 minutes.
