    Place the water, combined sugar, golden syrup, lemon juice and butter in a large saucepan over low heat and stir until the sugar dissolves and the butter melts. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.

    Meanwhile, place the flour in a bowl. Use your fingertips to rub the extra butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs (see note). Whisk the milk and egg together in a small bowl. Add to the flour mixture and use a round-bladed knife in a cutting motion to mix until the mixture starts to come together. Use your hands to bring the dough together in the bowl. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions and roll each portion into a ball.
