Cranberry Cornflake Cookies

Labels: { , }

These cornflake cookies are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Just delicious! Serve them for tea or as an energy boost with a glass of milk for your kids after a long day of school.

  • 120 g Butter, diced, at room temperature
  • 100 g Brown sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 130 g Pastry flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp Milk
  • 45 g Dried cranberries
  • 80 g Kellogg's Cornflakes
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line two baking trays with paper. Wish together the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  2. Cream the butter, brown sugar and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl until creamy. Add in the flour mixture, and mix on low speed until just combined. Add in milk and mix until dough comes together. Using a wooden spoon, stir in cornflakes and dried cranberries, and mix until well combined.
  3. Form the mixture into 24 balls and place them 1-inch apart onto the prepared trays. Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon. Bake for 14 minutes until light golden. Cool for 5 minutes on tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

Roxan 4/10/10 05:50

Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Sounds like my kind of cookie!


What an inspired idea! The cornflakes must provide a great crunch!

Dear Angie, regarding the comment in my blog: How the site will work I have written in the About section of it ('s only in the primary level that it is decided how it will work....In the first initiation level we requested the victims of plagiarism to write about their experiences and to highlight the fake bloggers and we altogether will fight for it.. like sending the person msgs, mails..etc...Those who will be a member of it will blog about the fake member on their blogs.....I truly believe that fighting together is much more stronger than fighting alone...As days will pass by I think we will also come up with lots of ideas to fight more effectively ...But for that the site needs a strong group of board/site members....Who will work sincerely and believes that honesty is the best policy....Everybody is always welcome to join the site and also to join us as a board member...We will be glad if you us as a board member.....

Unknown 4/10/10 19:24

That looks so good. I love the add of cornflakes.

Nate @ House of Annie 4/10/10 19:55

crispy *and* chewy at the same time? Not only would my kids love it, but I might even devour a whole stack of cookies myself!

Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets 4/10/10 20:13

That textural contrast sounds really delicious and would surely be a conversation starter among those that tried it. Great idea.

pigpigscorner 4/10/10 20:59
