Nutty Fruity Chewy Cornflake Cookies

Servings : Makes 3 dozen

These are my darling hubby’s favourite cookies so I make them fairly often and the cookie jar is always wiped clean in no time. Nutty Fruity Chewy Cornflake Cookies!


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter, at room temperature (I prefer butter)
  • 1 cup crushed nuts (I used wholenuts, almonds and pistachios but you can use any)
  • 1/2 cup dates (deseeded and chopped into small pieces)
  • 2 cups cornflakes (crushed)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour


Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time and beat well. Add the vanilla and mix. Then, fold in with a wooden spoon the dry ingredients a little at a time until well incorporated.

Drop the cookie dough by the teaspoon onto a greased or lined tray leaving space around the cookies. Flatten the cookies slightly by pressing them with your finger. Bake at 170 C for 10-12 mins. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.
