This is the second attempt for cornflakes cookies as my hubby mentioned previous recipe were not crunchy enough.

A – 100 gram butter, 80 grams caster sugar . Cream till white and fluffy.
B - 1 egg,1/2 tsp of vanilla essence.B eat egg with a fork and add vanilla. Add to the Part A above and mix well.
C -150 grams wheat flour, 15 grams custard powder (custard powder will give cookies more crunch and yellowish tinge), 30 grams Nestum cereal, 50 grams ground almond * i used wheat flour and is a bit hard..

D. Corn Flakes – About 50 grams, gently meshed

Mix all the above well (C). Add to the batter of Part A+ Part B. Use your hands to mix well and form a ball. If the batter is too wet and cannot form balls, add a bit of flour. If it is too dry, add a bit of water.

Form into tiny marble sizes and put into the cornflakes to coat the cookie. Put each ball into the individual paper cups. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes.
