This is Mr G’s attempt to be ‘creative’ in the kitchen. He added cocoa to his basic CORNFLAKE COOKIES recipe. In my opinion, he should have added more cocoa, maybe ¼ cup instead of two tbsp. You be the judge, if you are willing to take up the challenge. I have to however, give him kudos for trying. Here’s the recipe.
125 g butter
½ cup sugar
1 egg – lightly beaten
1 cup cornflakes
1 - 2 cup cornflakes – lightly crushed – for coating
1 cup self raising flour plus 2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 to 1 ½ cups sultanas*
Pinch of salt*
Lightly grease baking trays and preheat oven to 180°c.
Sift flour and add * ingredients.
Cream butter and sugar till fluffy. Add flour mix and egg and blend thoroughly. Now add 1 cup of cornflakes. Lightly combine the mixture as you don’t want the cornflakes to dissolve.
Roll 2 tsp of dough into small balls and coat with cornflakes.
Flatten slightly and place on greased trays. Bake for around 15 mins, in a 180°c oven.
Remove from tray and cool on wire rack/s. Makes around 30 cookies.
