Sift together all the dry ingredients.
Rub in the margarine, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add the syrup. Mix it in first with a wooden spoon and then with your hands, to form a smooth ball.
Divide the mixture into small balls (approx. 12) and place on a baking try lined with greaseproof paper. Then press the balls flat with your fingers.
Bake for 10 mins.
Remove from tray immediately and cool on wire rack.
