One of my favorite Chinese New Year cookies. Many requested for this cookies during festive seasons. Crushed cornflakes are added and this cornflakes are what that made these cookies so crunchy. Sometimes brandy soaked raisins are added. Red and green cherries bits are placed on top to give the cookies the festive look. All my cookies recipes are straightforward and easy to follow.
250 gms butter
375gm self raising flour
80gms sugar/ 80gms brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
100gms cornflakes (crushed with a rolling pin)
Preheat oven to 170.
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy add in vanilla essence.
Add in the egg( do not use big egg or else the cookies will not hold it's shape and will spread) Slowly add in the s.r.flour and cornflakes alternately.
Mix to a slightly wet dough.
Drop a tsps of batter onto a lined greased tray and flattened the cookies dough.
Make sure to spaced out the cookies( will doubled in size) Placed cut cherries on top and bake for 10-15 mins or until golden brown.
Cookies will be soft when you take out from oven but will harden when cooled.
