The recipe in The Baking Bible is for cannoli, but delicious as they sounded, the combination of a fruity, creamy filling and a short shelf life didn’t seem like a viable option for my family, so I opted to make the cookies alone.
Here are the ingredients, first just butter and golden syrup, then everything together ready to cook in the microwave.
Now the boiled ingredients + flour on the left, and the batter ready to pour onto the cookie sheet.
Here are the cookies ready for the oven.

I even rolled a few just to see if I could do it. I got a couple to roll right, but it was tough. Eventually I realized that the raindrops spattering lightly outside might have something to do with my temperamental brandy snaps. Rolled or not, I found they go well with vanilla ice cream. If and when I have the appropriate dinner party I will make the filling and create cannoli!
