Cornflakes Cookies

Photobucket

Crispy!!! Crunchy!! Melt in the mouth!! Delicious!! Rustic!! Irresistible!! Yummy!! are just some of the comments I have got from people when I have made these cookies at home :) I feel so blissful when I get such comments from them :) Cant ask for anything else in return.

These cookies are easy to make and taste simply delicious. Since its a loose dough cookies that spreads well, it will yield a lot in terms of quantity too :)

Yup thats a lot of butter, but you can skip some oil and cream for the next couple of days and indulge in these :P Your tongue needs to be treated royally at times too!!

My funda is to bake with enough(Lots) of butter but eat less quantity. Don't compromise on taste to eat more. Two delicious cookies a day would do to satisfy your cravings. :) What do you say????

Ingredients:

Butter – 1 cup (200 gms)

Cornflakes – 1 cup

Method:

Sieve all purpose flour and baking powder together twice and keep it aside.

Beat butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add essence and beat. Pour in 1 tbl spn of water at a time and beat until incorporated.

Now add the sieved flour and baking powder mixture in three parts and beat in slow speed until it forms into soft dough.

Now cover the bowl with cling film and keep in the fridge for 15 mins.

Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 c.

Crush the corn flakes in a blender or just with hands into small bits and take in a wide plate or bowl.

Remove the dough from fridge. Wet your hands and pinch small portions of the dough and drop it on the corn flakes and roll until it is well coated. Flatten it using your palms and place on baking tray leaving 1 inch space between the cookies.

Bake for 12 to 15 mins on 180 c.

Tips:

You can use bread crumbs instead of crushed cornflakes and call it bread crumb cookies too :P

It might be a little soft when the cookies are out of the oven, but it will become crispy and melt in the mouth kind once it cools down.

I stay away from recipes which call for more than 100gms of butter,but you've rightly said that we should minimize the portions,wish it was as easier,hmm.Love the crispy and crunchy cornflakes cookies,should halve the portions and try:))
