I'm not sure why I had a graving for cornflakes cookies a few months back. As I really could not remember the recipe my mum had used, I randomly took one off the internet. I tried it out but somehow the cookies did not turn as I had hoped. So I dropped an email to my sister who is currently residing in Melbourne to ask for her recipe. Ever since I tried out her recipe, I've made these cookies on four separate occassions.
113g unsalted butter
141g self-raising flour, sifted
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups lightly crushed cornflakes
1) Beat soften butter and sugar until light in colour.
2) Add egg and vanilla extract.
3 Fold in flour in one go and shape the biscuit dough into the size of small limes.
4) Roll the dough balls into the cornflakes and place on a lined baking tray about 1 1/2" apart.
5) Bake cookies in a preheated oven of 160-170C for 15-18 mins
To make self-raising flour, mix 150gm plain flour with 1 tsp baking powder.
For variation to the cookie recipe, you can add in 1/2 cup of raisins or cranberries.
