For vanilla cookies you will need:

Combine the butter with the sugar and golden syrup and cream using an electric mixer. Beat in the eggs and the vanilla. Sift in the flour and mix with a large metal spoon then use your hands to form the dough. Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours.
Prepare a baking dish by spraying with baking spray. Roll out the dough dough on a floured work surface.
