Arkensen’s appetite has been growing lately. He is constantly looking for snacks. So, I decided to bake a batch of cookies to satisfy his huge appetite.
After browsing through my recipe collections, I decided to try this Corn Flake Cookies since I have some corn flakes in my pantry. My kids are not a fan of cereals. I bought the corn flakes to make Peanut Butter Pita Bread.
The Corn Flake Cookies came out thin, crispy and buttery, just the way Ben likes cookies. However, Arkensen would prefer chewier cookies.
This recipe yields 40 cookies. This is a very simple cookies recipe and I don’t think I need to illustrate the steps with pictures. I will just post the recipe here.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup butter, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups cornflakes, whole
- Cream the butter and sugar (I just cream them by hand).
- Mix all dry ingredients and add to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix well.
- Add nuts, vanilla and cornflakes (no need to crush as the mixing will crush them). Mix until blended (by hand).
- Roll into balls about the size of an English walnut. I used a small ice-cream scoop to do the job.
- Place balls on an ungreased cookie sheet (which I lined with parchment paper). Leave space (2″ apart) for spreading as the cookies spread quite a bit. Flatten the ball with a fork.
- Bake in a preheated 350F (I set mine to 325F as I’m using dark cookie sheet) for 10 to 12 minutes.
- Let cool slightly on cookie sheet (cookie is very soft just out of the oven) before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
I hope you’ll enjoy this cookie as much as I do.
