Cornflakes Cookies (Honey Joys)

I didnt know these were known as honey joys.  When I saw the photos I thought they looked very close to what my colleague let me tried and was telling me how good they were.  She told me maple essence was added and this is one ingredient that is not easily available.  I was thinking "wow, what so great about this maple essence" and I did checked with one or two seasoned bakers who told me maple essence is not available in Singapore but can be replaced with maple syrup.  To me it was like dont have either dont do or dont add. 

So when I was this at Happy Home Baking, I thought "dont they look like what I was offered" and I read through the ingredients no maple essence was called for and it was easy and looks good to snack on too.  I have all the ingredients so I decided to give it a try and the taste was really close and almost the same as I what my colleague had let me try.

Besides cornflakes, the almond flaks and sesame seeds greatly enhance palatability and flavour of these buttery sweet snacks, making them a real crunchy and joyful treat for anyone, on any occasion.  This will be be Chinese New Year cookie next year.
