Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk and golden syrup, beat thoroughly. Sift dry ingredients together and work into butter mixture to form a soft dough.
Knead lightly on a floured surface and roll out to about 3mm thickness. Cut into heart shapes and arrange on a greased backing tray. Bake in a preheated oven (180°C/350°F) for 15 minutes.
