Super Easy Cornflake Cookies

19 June 2011, 23:03

It’s a cookie tower baby yeah!!! Ohhhh yeah thanks to the power of the twitterverse the call for cornflake cookies was just too hard to resist (here’s looking at you Karen!).

So over the weekend a box of cornflakes was procured (thanks Josh and Will!) and a quick google of some recipes and I landed on this recipe. I’ve tweaked it a bit but this recipe makes about 50 cookies. I have issues with raisins in my cookies but if you love em go ahead and whack em in!

250g butter at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups self-raising flour
3 cups cornflakes
¼ cup white choc chips

Preheat oven to 170°C (fan forced) and line 2 large oven trays. Cream the 250g butter and 1 cup brown sugar together until light and fluffy.

Beat in the eggs and the 1tsp vanilla extract.

Smoosh 1 cup of cornflakes and smoosh em good.

Add the 2 cups of self-raising flour, 1 cup smooshed cornflakes and the ¼ cup white choc chips to your mixture and mix until just combined.

Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and drop and cover in the remaining 2 cups lightly crushed cornflakes.

Arrange on trays about 4cm apart and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden.

Cool on tray for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

And we have deliciousness in da house!

  25. Random, I have self rising flour I’ve been trying to find a use for AND cornflakes, unopened. Who the heck knows why I bought either of the 2, but I have them, and I’m gonna use them for these cookies!

  26. This is something that I can actually bake (kind of), but usually follow the recipe on the back of the cornflake box.

  27. These make me feel young just looking at them! I don’t know if I’m being a bit stupid, but once you’ve rolled them into balls, coated them and laid them on the tray, do you have to squash them into cookie shapes or do they just go like that in the oven?… I think I’d like mine dipped in chocolate as an extra treat.

  36. These cookies are the best ever. Thanks for posting. Mine were too crumbly but I think because I used all-purpose flour with baking powder and soda. I probably should have reduced the flour.

  37. Thanks for the easy recipe,
    This is the second time I have made these cookies my family loved them.
    First time I replaced the chocolate for sultanas, as my husband doesn’t like chocolate chips.
    This time I am adding dark chocolate chips, as requested by the kids…..
