Occasionally I get a craving for a childhood favourite, Cornflake Cookies. There is something about the plain cookie base, the sweet raisins and the crunchy cornflake outer that totally does it for me! I made these cookies yesterday and they really haven't spent much time in their airtight container... they are too delicious!
I like mine a little thick, meaning they are a bit more cake like in the middle; soft and airy, a contrast to the crunchy outside.
This recipe makes about 12 cookies.
You will need:
125g softened butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup of raisins
2 to 3 cups of cornflakes
- preheat oven at 180 degrees celsius
- cream butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat
- Add flour and salt and mix to combine
- stir in raisins to combine
- using a tablespoon, add balls of cookie mixture to the cornflakes and roll to coat. I press down slightly to flatten and ensure cornflakes are pressed in.
- bake for 15 to 20 minutes, cookies will spread slightly.
- cool on wire rack and store in airtight container.
