Recipe: Cornflakes Cookies (CNY)

Since the kids are on CNY school holidays, we decided to do some CNY baking with them to replenish our CNY cookie stock ;) I chose a simple recipe - cornflakes cookies, which requires only 6 ingredients and is very easy to follow, even for kids.

It was a fun morning for us making these cookies -our kids helped with measuring out the ingredients, crushing the cornflakes using a rolling pin - Baby C crushed them until they were quite fine, however will try this recipe again in future with lightly crushed cornflakes. Once the cookie dough was made, I was in charge of scooping out the dough, the kids rolled them into balls and Hubby was in charge of QC, making sure there were of a similar size.

These cornflakes cookies were fragrant, buttery and crumbly with a crunchy texture from the cornflakes. Thanks BabySumoKids for doing a fantastic job!

1. Place cornflakes in a zip lock bag and crush with a rolling pin until fine.
