Cornflakes Cookies

My kids love cornflakes (plain without milk) and with a balance bag of it, I made cornflakes cookies. I've never eaten any cornflakes cookies before (I've only baked cornflakes coated with honey) until sister C made them for CNY a few years ago. I thought it tasted pretty decent and I've been looking forward to her recipe. Then again, women of "ancient age" do not cook/bake with a recipe so I had to google and look for one, hoping that it will be as good as hers. I found this recipe and decided to give it a go since there's no creaming of butter and sugar. Yes, lazy mode was turned on again :P

I omit pure vanilla extract since I don't have them and I do not wish to use imitation/artificial flavoured ones. Also, I added in some dried currants for flavour and I must say these cookies are pretty good.

Cornflakes Cookies
12oml oil (I used sunflower oil)
1 large egg
1/4 cup sugar

1 1/4 cup self-raising flour
1 1/2 cup cornflakes

  1. Mix (A) in a bowl. Add in (B). Mix well with a spatula. Some cornflakes will crush when mixing.
  2. Use a small cookie scoop and scoop cookie dough and place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake at preheated 180C oven for 15-17 minutes.
  4. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes before transferring it to cool completely on a wire rack.
  5. Store in air-tight container.


  • Yield about 40 with my small cookie scoop.
  • You should bake the cookie dough inside the paper case so that the dough will expand to fit the paper cup while baking.

Ur cornflakes cookies look very good. I have a rolled oats cookies recipe which is very similar to this, next time u may try to replace cornflakes with rolled oats I am sure it will be nice too. :-)
