Crunchy Cornflake Cookies

I triple love these cookies.

You can make use of those extra crushed cornflakes you have left over from making
nuggets. (tsulin, I promised you this).

For reasons unknown, there were cookies left over even after one week & they still remained crunchy (I kept them in a biscuit tin). They were great for that mid afternoon snack on the site with a cup of coffee.

Crunchy Cornflake Cookies (makes 24)

100g butter, room temperature
50g sugar
pinch of salt
1 egg yolk

1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1 - 1.5 tsp orange zest (I used lemon zest)

150g cake flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/8 tsp baking soda

50g cornflakes

1. Sieve flour together with baking powder and baking soda.

2. Cream butter with sugar and salt till creamy.

3. Add in the egg yolk and vanilla esssence and cream till well combined.

4. Stir in the orange zest.

5. Fold in the sieved flour mixture and cornflakes. Mix till you get a soft dough.

6. Divide dough into 2, then quarter, then each into 3 equal pieces. Press each into a flat round.

7. Bake at 175C for 18 - 20 minutes or till golden brown.
