Bourbon Biscuits Recipe

I got a bit brave last week and decided to attempt making Bourbon Biscuits. They were never going to be as good as the real thing but for a first attempt at something I have never tried before, I think they turned out pretty well. George ate most of them so that must be a good sign. 
Ingredients:
225g plain flour
75g cocoa powder
2 tbsp golden syrup
3 tbsp milk
125g margarine
125 caster sugar
1 tsp bicarb

I don't have exact measurements for the filling, it was just a buttercream I made using cocoa powder, butter and icing sugar, there are loads of recipes for buttercream online so you'll definitely be able to find one! 

Method:
1. In a bowl, add the flour, butter, cocoa, sugar, golden syrup and bicarb, I started off mixing with a wooden spoon but as you want it to form a dough, I ended up just using my hands to get it all together
2. When it starts forming into a dough, add the milk a tablespoon at a time, this really makes it stick together. When this is done, wrap it in clingfilm and leave to chill in the fridge for 15 minutes
3. When the dough has chilled for 15 minutes, put a bit of flour on the surface and start to roll out. Again I can't really give exact measurements for how big they should be but if you look at the picture, they do rise quite a bit so make your own judgement based on that
4. Grease a baking tray, and when your dough is rolled out and cut, put on the baking tray and put into a 180 degrees pre-heated oven for around 20 minutes
5. As I said above, for the buttercream I just mixed butter, icing sugar and cocoa powder, I ended up using loads of icing sugar as it ended up quite runny. I actually put it in the fridge to chill so it could thicken up a little bit.When the biscuits are out of the oven and cooled, you can sandwich them together with the buttercream!
