I would like to make these cookies for Book Club, http://toriavey.com/toris-kitchen/2012/04/anzac-biscuits/, but not sure what to use as a substitute for treacle, aka golden syrup. Someone commented molasse. Any one familiar with this recipe?

It is delicious, with a warm, sort of burnt sugary taste but no distinctive flavor profile like maple syrup or molasses, both of whose flavors are too strong & too different to substitute. Options include corn syrup or a pourable honey without a heavy flower taste profile. see this helpful article on substitutes. http://cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/43920/what-is-the-us-equivalent-of-golden-syrup-uk
also, check your local grocery for international section or a specialty store that might carry the Lyle produce. Or amazon
