Golden Syrup Cookies with Chocolate Chips

With the Chinese New Year approaching, it is hard not to bake some cookies in my kitchen. Since I've been wanting to try out this golden syrup cookies recipe, now is the perfect time. I've made some tweaks in the original recipe to suit my family's palate. The result is a batch of yummy~licious cookies!

These cookies are super addictive! My almost-3-years old daughter couldn't stop taking the cookies while it was still cooling on the wire rack. And now (just after one night), I only have 7 pieces left in the jar. My hubby gave me a rating 9 out of 10!

While I was working on this dough, I thought, "Will it be better if I add some peanut butter?" So, I tried adding about 2 heaps tablespoons of peanut butter with the last quarter of my cookie dough and mixed it till it was well combined. The dough became softer and the baked cookies were yummylicious. It has the 'melt-in-your-mouth' texture and the three of us (my hubby, daughter and I) gobbled up all 12 pieces in no time (hence there is no photo of it). My hubby gave me a rating 10 out of 10!

"Since the peanut butter (PB) version got a higher rating than the non-PB, then I'll just bake the PB version," I said to my hubby. He said NO, he wants BOTH versions as both are good in their own way. Such a greedy man he is! Haha...
