Cornflake Cookies

Ah, cornflake cookies. They always brings me back to childhood Chinese New Year celebrations in Malaysia (which I’ve been missing the past couple of years… =( ) These were made based on Amy Beh’s recipe from The Star’s I did at first think that adding lemon rind to cornflake cookies was a bit unusual but after trying the recipe both with and without lemon rind I find that it gives the cookies a refreshing touch which I’ve become quite fond of.

110g butter, softened
1 cup self raising flour+1 tablespoon cornflour, sifted
½ cup caster sugar
1 egg yolk
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
½ teaspoon lemon rind
100g lightly crushed cornflakes

1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg yolk, vanilla, and lemon rind, mix well.
2. Mix in flours to form a dough. Pat dough into a ball, cover and refrigerate for about 40 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 170C. Line baking trays with baking sheets.
4. Drop ½ teaspoons of dough into crushed cornflakes and shape into balls. Place on baking sheets slightly spaced apart and bake for about 15 minutes or until cookies are a light golden brown.
