Cornflake Cookies

As mentioned, the wedding preparation has left our kitchen idling for too long and since Chinese New Year is coming in less than 2 weeks time, this makes it a good excuse to mess up the kitchen before spring cleaning.

After attempting Rasa Malaysia's Sweet and Sour Pork, I have been visiting her website for some easy recipes and Cornflakes Cookies caught my attention for the short preparation time and minimal ingredients required.

A very simple recipe to follow and the fun comes with crushing the cornflakes and rolling them into cute little balls. Taste-wise, sweetness is just right with nice crisp cornflakes as the coating though we felt that the dough is a little bland and dry. Not sure would it be a better bet to use rub-in method and throw in some almond powder for better texture.
