Have you had a really good cornflake cookie before? You know the ones - the right amount of crunch from the cornflakes, the right amount of chew from the cookie dough and the right amount of sweetness from the sultanas. Well this recipe did not produce those cookies. Dang it. There were way too many cornflakes so the cookies were almost impossible to put together. In fact a lot of them fell apart after been baked.
Have you got a tried and true recipe for cornflake cookies? I would love to steal it if you do, so please let me know.
For now here is my dodgy recipe...
Cornflake Sultana Cookies (from The Australian Women's Weekly Basic Cookbook)
Makes about 25
5 cups cornflakes
1 cup coconut (desiccated)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sultanas (I used raisins)
1 cup self-raising flour
185g butter, melted
2 eggs, lightly beaten
- Combine cornflakes, coconut, sugar, sultanas and sifted flour in large bowl.
- Stir in butter and eggs gently with a wooden spoon.
- Shape rounded tablespoons of mixture into balls (yeah right, that was nearly impossible).
- Place balls about 5cm apart on greased oven trays.
- Bake at 180C for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Stand cookies for 3 minutes before cooling on a wire rack.
