Cornflake Cookies

Cornflake cookies

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 egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup of raisins
2 to 3 cups of cornflakes

How to!

  1. preheat oven at 180 degrees celsius
  2. cream butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla and continue to beat
  3. Add flour and salt and mix to combine
  4. stir in raisins to combine
  5. 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.
  6. bake for 15 to 20 minutes, cookies will spread slightly.
  7. cool on wire rack and store in airtight container.
