Preheat the oven to 180C (160C fan-assisted, 350F).
In a large bowl, beat the margarine, golden syrup, sugar and food colouring until fluffy.
Add the egg. Beat until well combined.
Fold in the flour and the baking powder.
Add 100g of Matchmaker pieces. Stir through.
Place tablespoons of mixture at least 5cm (2 inches) apart on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until they just start to go golden at the very edges. Remove from the oven.
While the cookies are still hot, put extra Matchmaker pieces on top of the cookies.
Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes until firm enough to transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
To keep these Matchmaker cookies fresher for longer store them in an airtight container in the pantry or cupboard.Allow your cookies to cool completely on a wire rack before transferring them to a suitable container. It's best to keep them in a box that they just fit in snuggly, rather than one with lots of air space around them. They should keep for about a week.Fancy a change? How about using Orange Matchmakers and orange food colouring instead?
