Hi Pam,
I am new here and I am definitely hooked on cookies. Love your designs, you have an wonderful talent. I am a keen baker and have being inspired by you to start decorating cookies. Have checked your blog and got the right recipe. My problem is that I cannot find corn syrup, I live in Yorkshire, north of England. I have tried to make the glaze using golden syrup and it doesn't seem right. The flavour is lovely, but the color is not really white but off-white. Also, when the cookies dry they look like discoloured, and like cracking. I wonder if it is the natural effect when using golden syrup. This is my second batch and no matter how close I try to follow the recipe, it doesn't seem to work. Here they sell something called "Liquid Glucose", do you think it would work? Also, your recipe asks for American cups, could you please tell me how many ml in one of your cups? Sorry there are so many questions in my first "comment". Thanks a lot.

Hi Margaret. Welcome to CookieCrazie. :)

I've encountered the same problems for my dear friends in Ukraine. They don't have corn syrup either......so we've tried to improvise.

Liquid Glucose is definitely the answer. I don't know what golden syrup is, but if it is anything like our darker syrups, it won't work for coloring icing.

There is a ink on the right side bar for converting ingredient units. Hopefully that will help you convert from cups to ml.

Hi Margaret,
Another UK'er here. Isn't golden syrup a pain when we don't have the same corn syrup our US friends use. There are places we can buy corn syrup here. There are 2 versions of it though - light and dark. It's by a brand called Karo I believe.

Otherwise, people from our neck of the woods make it themselves (google home-made corn syrup). As for cups, you can use Pam's convertor or, most supermarkets sell measuring cups. Most of my recipes I use are from fellow bloggers and I had to cave and buy the measuring cups as it was too much hassle converting each time.

Love the new cookies, Pam. The Frappucinos look fantastic. It does seem like a new generation of take-out coffee drinkers has been bred, lol. Pity, I dislike coffee so count me out!
