Recipe adapted from here
Yields - 12 - 15 cookies depending on the size you roll them
1 1/4 cup - all purpose flour
2 tbsp. - Corn flour
1/4 tsp. - Baking powder
1/2 cup (1 stick) - Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup - Sugar
1 - egg
1/4 tsp. - vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup - Plain Corn flakes ( crushed )
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Sift flour, corn flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
- Cream butter and Sugar for few minutes until fluffy in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer using paddle attachment or using an electric hand mixer. Add the egg and vanilla and beat well till creamy.
- Add the flour mixture to it and beat till combined. The dough will be slightly sticky. If it is hard to handle, cover it with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15 - 20 minutes to set.
- Make balls using 1 tbsp. of the dough for each cookie and gently press them between your palms to flatten. Roll them in crushed corn flakes.
- Place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper with enough spacing so that they get room for expansion. Bake them for 25 - 30 minutes.
- Cool them on wire rack and store it in air tight container. These cookies will stay fresh for 2 weeks at room temperature in air tight containers.
- I bake them for 30 minutes, so that they turn out little crunchy and crispy and this helps to keep them longer. If you are making small cookies, 25 minutes of baking will be enough. Depending upon your oven and the size of the cookies, the time may vary. So keep an eye on the cookies after 20 minutes.
