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.
