Baking Exploration ::: Cornflakes Cookies / Cereal Cookies

Despite of my work and wedding planning.....

Here I go! Another new batch of Cookies for this festive season! However, believe this recipe is suitable for all occasions.

My mom bought me 1 kg of Cornflakes! What should I do to them other then baking cookies for dear's & my family reunion gathering coming up this Saturday? Our very last CNY apart, as we will be celebrating everything together after March!

2-3 cups of coarsely crushed Cornflakes or any Cereal (depends how much you're rolling on the dough)
**Tips: Purchse the thick Cornflakes not the thin one as it does not work!)
200g Salted Butter
150g Fine Sugar
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
300g All Purpose Flour
30g Corn Flour or Corn Starch
Mini Papercups

Step By Step
Spend some time by crushing the cornflakes.
**Tips: Place some of the cornflakes into a bowl and use a flat bottom cup to crush it. Then pour it into a sieve to remove all the powder crumbs. Place the coarsely crush cornflakes in to a separate bowl / tupperware.

Beat the butter and sugar till it's well mixed where is it pale and creamy.

Add in vanilla essence and continue mixing until it's combined.

Stir in the lightly beaten eggs.

Slowly pour in the flour and fold in the flour mixture including the corn flour. The mixture must not stick to the mixing bowl.

Pre-heat the oven at 180°C.

Arrange mini paper cups on to your trays.

Using a teaspoon, scoop out about 1 teaspoon of the cookie dough and gently roll it into the coarsely crushed cornflakes.
**Tips: Rolling is a little slow. Method I suggest is to scoop some of he coarsely crushed cornflakes in a light plastic blow, place 2 to 3 teaspoon of dough apart then lightly toss it around! Wahhhh...la.... ^_^ 2 to 3 cookies are ready! splendid & quick method.

Place it on to the mini papercups and lightly press on to it.

Repeat until the tray is full!

Bake for 23mins or until golden brown.

Remove from tray and put on the cooling rack to cool for 30 to 40mins then place in an air tight bottle.
