Long overdue post : CNY Cornflakes cookies

This is actually a long overdue post. But hey, its still Chinese New Year! This is really a very easy recipe, which is great if you are making a few different cookies for Chinese New Year. I always go for those quick and easy recipes. My beloved Fiance loves it alot and he told me that it taste really nice and crunchy.


  • 250g butter
  • 165g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 65g crushed cornflakes
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla essence
  • 310g plain flour
  • 1tbsp baking powder
  • A pinch of salt
  • 180-200g lightly crushed cornflakes for coating

1.    Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy
2.    Add in the eggs, vanilla, mix well.
3.    Fold in sifted flour, baking powder and salt and then add in crushed cornflakes.
4.    Scoop the batter into small baking cups
5.    Bake in a preheated oven at 180*C  for about 20-22 mins., or till light golden brown.
6.    Let them cool on the  baking tray for about 30 mins  before storing in air-tight container.
7.    Makes 80-90 cookies.

Very easy right? But do note on the baking time as underbaked dough will result in chewy cornflakes instead of crunchy.
