Lyle's Golden Syrup

Lyle's Golden Syrup is a favorite sweetener in Africa, New Zealand and Australia. It is thicker than American corn syrup and is also known as light treacle or evaporated sugar cane juice in England. These bar cookies must be cut while warm.

    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups flaked coconut
    2 cups thick rolled oats
    1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
    1 cup butter
    2 tablespoons Lyle's Golden Syrup

2 teaspoons baking soda
    2 tablespoons boiling water

1.  Preheat oven to 350 .

2.  In an extra large bowl, mix flour, coconut, oats and brown
     sugar. Use your fingertips to break up any lumps.

3.  Melt the butter in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat.
     Stir in syrup and simmer until a candy thermometer
     reads 225
.  In a small bowl, mix baking soda with boiling
     water; stir quickly into hot syrup.

4.  Pour bubbling syrup over oat mixture; stir well. Use the back
     of a spoon to press into a 13 x 9 x 2-inch glass baking dish.

5.  Bake in the preheated oven for 17 to 20 minutes. Cut into 16
     bars while still warm. Cool, then remove from pan.

     Makes 16 bar cookies
