Cornflake Cookies

I actually have no intention of baking cookies this CNY but seeing so many bloggers posting the various cookies have spurred me to warm up the oven and with Jess hosting the Aspiring Baker #3 - my favourite CNY cookies, I thought I must bake a bit more and join the fun.  Closing date is 31 Jan 2011 if you have not submitted your entries, do hurry.  Details are Jess.

Recipe reference from Anncoo

250g butter
175g icing sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla powder
350g plain flour
160g cornflakes (crushed)
50g black currant

1. Combine plain flour, baking powder and vanilla powder together with the crushed cornflakes and black currant, set aside.

2. Cream butter, egg and icing sugar together till white.

3. Put in all the plain flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well.

4. Use spoon to scoop the mixture on to the baking tray.

5. Bake at 180 Deg C for about 15 minutes or until cookies are done.

  3. WA! There are so many Angpows! Does the Anpows come with the cornflake cookies?...hahaa..

  4. mmm delicious! they look really crunchy and yummy, the currants also look really inviting :)

  5. I've made cornflake cookies too with a different recipe. Yours look very good and so crunchy. I have a new linky on my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link this up.

  6. Jess, they are very crunchy. This is the 2nd year I am making these cookies for cny.

    Lena, help yourself to some to recall if they taste the same cornflake cookies you love. ;)

    Anncoo, the angpows are waiting for you to fill in your cookies. I love your pineapple tarts and would love to try the cream cheese cookies too. Did you get my hint?

  9. Mmm...I love these cornflakes cookies...crunchy and addictive.

  10. I love the extra crunch cornflakes give to cookies. I have never made cookies with black currant before. But i think they should taste pretty yummy!
