Cornflakes & Raisins Cookies

Wei, wei, wei, Chinese New Year is just one week away from now. Have you stock up your cookies? This year, I am quite lazy to bake. But because I have few orders from a dear friend of mine, I decided to make just enough for her and also a few for my relatives.

I tried to bake simple cookies this time. To me, the cornflakes cookies is kinda easy to bake.

Just cream the butter, sugar, eggs and flour. Coat them with cornflakes before sending them to the oven. Let me know if you want the proportion for the ingredients.

I find them more presentable and faster if you bake the cookies in mini paper cups but the texture is not completely crunchy especially at the base of the cookies.

I think something is wrong with my recipes. Good for the kids tho as they get to eat the something-is-wrong cookies. *snigger* I remember during my childhood days when my mom make Kuih Kapit for CNY. We only get to get the chau tah (burned) or cacat (distorted) looking ones. The curse has been passed down to this generation as kids STILL get to eat only chau tah cookies but Mom will yell if they ever touch the nice looking piece. 😳

To finish up the cornflakes that I have, I coat them with melted chocolates and deco with some colourful sprinkles.

My Children finished up the whole container of this. By the time I found out, they left only 3 pieces behind. By night time, Baby Princess is crocking! Now I have no more cookies to chia my guest.

At the same time, I baked the pineapple cookies too. This time I’ve replace the pineapple with Buah Kurma (Dates) cos I really want to keep it a simple baking session.

You can find the pineapple cookies recipe here. All you need to do is replaced the pineapple jam with Buah Kurma. Very simple task.

This is how it looks like inside.

I’ve done baking for CNY and earned myself a back pain from the 5 hours of baking. *ouch*

Short Talk – Leaving for a cruise vacation is so exciting that one might forget a lot of important chores like booking for car rental in advance. Everyone remembers getting the cheap flights, but people often forget the airline tickets at home or the hotel when traveling in large groups.

    I bake my cornflake cookies in the mini cupcake moulds, without the paper cups. I find it makes the cookies really beautifully shaped. I’m not baking this year though. I simply don’t have time. I’m hoping to get some from you though. *sniggers also*

    hi..could i get the recipe for the cornflake cookies? and the proportions for the ingredients? thanks

    A) 150gm Butter, 150gm castor sugar, 1 large egg, 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    B) Cornflakes, raisins, 175gm flour, 3 tablespoons cornflour, 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.

    Cream ingredients A in an electric mixer. Start with butter and sugar till they turn creamy. Beat egg and vanilla essence in a bowl. Add in egg bit by bit to the mixture to avoid curding.

    Fold in ingredients B in the mixture using a spoon. Preheat oven at 180C. Bake till done or slightly brown.

    Note: You can choose to coat mixture on the crushed cornflakes or mix them in the dough. I like to to coat mine. That way, you get lots of cornflakes on the outside and no sticky hands too.

    hihi. so we follow the proportion of ingredients from the jan 10th post?
    but the method is the same as the reply on april 16?
    how long do we bake it for and rougly how many cookies does this recipe make?
    preparing for this year’s CNY.. thanks!

    The Queen says: Pls refer to comment dated April 16. Usually I set the oven at 180C and bake around 15-20mins or till brown. The proportion given can give you around 2 containers of cookies. Happy Baking!
