Cornflakes Cookies


This cookies never fail to attract my attention especially during CNY. Even after buying tubs of them from the night market, me, being greedy, will definitely bake tubs of this cookies too. I just enjoy munching them as they are real crunchy and they are really addictive. So if you are watching your weight, it's wise to take of an amount of cookies that you wanted to eat on to a plate instead of grabbing a tub of cookies and munching them while watching the TV.

Okay...let's get started with the easy peasy recipe...yippee!!!

Ingredients

  • 450g of butter
  • about 550g of plain flour, sifted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of castor sugar ( i used only 3/4 cup of sugar)
  • about 2 cups of cornflakes, crushed lightly

Method

  1. Cream the butter and sugar with a mixer until the mixture turns pale yellow.
  2. Add in the egg and continue mixing the mixture well, scrap down the sides of the mixing bowl to ensure the mixture are all mixed well.
  3. Put the mixer away and pour in the sifted flour in the mixing bowl.
  4. Now, with clean hands, start mixing the flour mixture to form a dough. If you find the dough too sticky to handle, add more plain flour to the dough.
  5. Take a pinch of the dough and roll into a small ball with your palms. Continue this process with the rest of the dough.
  6. Roll the balls of cookies into the bowl of crushed cornflakes and place them on a baking tray lined with baking sheets.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 180DC for 20 minutes or till golden brown.


The greedy me chomped down 4 cookies immediately after taking out the tray of cookies from the oven and needless to say, i burnt my tongue. Haha...i mean, how can you resist these mout-watering cookies when the aroma of these cookies engulfed the whole house of yours while baking in the oven? Certainly not me!



The above recipe yields me 1 big and 3 small tubs of cookies
