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
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!
