As I live in the US, I could not find golden syrup. I made a batch of Anzac bikkies using light corn syrup (and margarine instead of butter) and another batch using maple syrup (and again margarine). The corn syrup biscuits took much shorter time to cook and had a much better flavor. The maple syrup ones took a lot longer to cook and did not taste as good as the corn syrup batch, however they looked nicer since they didn't spread out over the whole pan. If you have to substitute golden syrup, use corn syrup and reduce your baking time. I also understand that using real butter makes the cookies crispier. My family likes them chewy so I use margarine. Happy baking!
