Cornflake cookies

Hello, it's M here and today I'm going to be talking about my family's​ new favourite thing to eat. I have borrowed this recipe from FAVOURITE cook book at the moment: Tanya Bakes. This cookies are just too good not to try. They may sound strange but just give it a go.


Ingredients

  • 200g Unsalted Butter, soft
  • 300g Golden caster sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 300g Self Raising Flour
  • 80g Cornflakes
  • 200g Chocolate or Chocolate Chips

Method
First of all, you need to preheat your oven to 200°c.
Next you need to make sure your butter is warm. Usually I put mine in the microwave for a minute and even though it turns into a liquid its this way it's easier. Whisk your sugar and butter together in a large bowl. Add the egg.

If you are using actual chocolate now would be a good time to chop it. I normally use milk chocolate but you can use whatever chocolate you like. I chop my chocolate into quarters.
Now you need to add your flour, cornflakes and chocolate to the butter and sugar mixture. Use a spoon to bring it together until it creates a sort of dough. 

Next, on 2 baking trays lined with baking paper, roll lumps of dough into circles and put them on the trays. Put 6 on each tray and the recipe should make 12 quite large cookies. Make sure they have plenty of room to spread in the oven.

Cook them in the oven for around 10 minutes. After 1o minutes, if they are not quite done you can put them back in for a few more minutes at a time until they are golden brown, if you like your cookies crunchy, and pale, if you like them softer.

Leave them to cool on a cooling rack and as they cool they will harden up.

I hope you give this really simple and easy recipe a go and hopefully they will be a hit in your house too!
