Cornflake Cookies

If you are one who likes crunch in every bite of cookies that you eat, you are at the right page. 

Ever since I've started using this recipe last year, there was no turning back to other recipes I've tried. This Cornflake Cookies recipe shared by my friend Meng Choo was particularly well received by family and friends.

My girl took a bite and her eyes immediately lit up and then she gave it her BIG THUMBS UP! What more is there to say? :)

Cornflake Cookies

makes 90-100 cookies

250g unsalted butter
165g caster sugar
1 egg
65g crushed cornflakes (I crushed them lightly only)
3/4 tsp vanilla extract
310g plain flour
1 tbspn  baking powder (yes, it is 1 tablespoon and not a typo error)
Pinch of salt
200g lightly crushed cornflakes for coating

1. Sieve together plain flour and baking powder. Add in salt and set aside. 

2. Cream butter and sugar till light and fluffy.

3. Add in eggs and vanilla extract and mix well.

4. Fold in sifted flour mixture.

5. Add 65g crushed cornflakes and mix well.

6. Chill the batter in the fridge for 20-25 minutes.

7. Lightly roll the cookie dough into balls and coat them with crushed cornflakes.

8. Place the cornflake balls onto lined baking tray, leaving 1 inch apart from each other.

9. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. (I baked for 22 mins)

10. Cool on a rack before storing in air-tight container.

  1. Cornflakes thats further toasted... what more can we say? Literally crunch time!

    Tks for linking to best recipes

  2. Hi LY, I could easily 'pop' these crunchy cookies non-stop. ... yummy!

  3. Hi LY,

    Your friend is very nice to share this recipe with you. I can see that this recipe is definitely a keeper!


  4. Oh my kids like these cornflakes treats too. Thanks for linking with us :)

  5. Hi LY,I'm one of the person who likes every crunchy bite ...hehehe
    so,could I have some to fulfill my hungry mouth?

  6. Hi Lai Ying, cornflake cookies are a must at CNY! love these because they are really one mouthful each!

  7. Thx for sharing recipe. I tried and the taste is good. However part of my cookies are burn.i baked 22mins under 180.can advise where should improve?

    1. Hi Vanessa, I suspect it could be due to uneven baking in the oven. Different oven differs so you will need to experiment and adjust your baking time and temperature accordingly. For uneven baking, you could try rotating your baking tray halfway through the baking time. Hope this helps. :)

    2. Hi LY, thanx for your comments. I think i need practice more to know how the oven temperature. btw this is my first attempt to bake cookies. Really appreciate and thx you share the best recipe to us. ;)

    3. Hi Vanessa, I had the same issues too when I first started. After 'knowing' your oven more, it would be ok. Happy baking! :)

  8. Hi,like to ask your baking powder is one tablespoon or one teaspoon . Tia..

  9. Hi.. Can I know how long can we keep the cookies?

    1. Hi ahyingying, it should keep well in air-tight containers for 3-4 weeks.

  10. I dont hv caster sugar...can i substitute it with fine granulated sugar?

  11. Can use salted butter instead of unsalted? Thanks!

    1. Hi Christina, I suppose you can but do omit the salt.

  12. Tried it this morning and - perfect recipe. - Easy and delicious.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Hweiling, Thanks for trying this out and happy that you like it!

  13. Hihi...if my cookies are burnt, should i just shorten the baking time without adjusting the temp?

    1. Hi Huihui,
      You can adjust the temp and monitor and baking time accordingly.

  14. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have made in writing this blog. Very Informative post with Images. very interesting topic regarding Kids Baking Set

  15. tried and the cookies had a horrible bitter aftertaste. googled and it could be due to the baking soda. 1 tablespoon was too much!! wasted the entire batch

    1. Dear Erica, sorry to hear about your bad experience. The recipe has asked for baking powder and not baking soda. They are different ingredients. So you have used the wrong ingredient.

  16. Thanks for the recipe. It is so easy & crunchy! Even little kids love them!
