Cornflake Cookies

I have a few busy days ahead of me and I’ve been busy in the kitchen baking things for little gifts to various people in my life. Decided to continue working away on my cornflake stash (about 1/3 of the box to go! Getting there!) and make some cornflake cookies.

These cookies remind me of my childhood in Malaysia where this was one of the staples during Chinese New Year celebrations. I still remember rolling these cookies and packing them into little plastic jars to give away during that festive season.

Recipe as follows:

100g butter, softened
75g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
150g plain flour
15g corn flour
cornflakes, crushed

  1. Preheat oven to 160 Celcius (fan forced)
  2. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beat until incorporated.
  3. Add the plain flour and corn flour in and mix by hand. Drop teaspoonfuls of the batter into crushed cornflakes and cover.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

To be honest, I found this recipe to be a little bland, although texturally wonderful – crunchy and light. I would suggest adding in some crushed nuts for a second dimension of flavour.
