Cornflake Biscuits

Today I cooked up a batch of some Cornflake Biscuits in between tidying bedrooms and folding mountains of clean washing. They are cheap to make, require basic ingredients and quick to make. 
I tweaked the recipe a little and I am very happy with the outcome.My tweaks are in brackets along side the original recipe. If you have a variation of this recipe, I would love for you to share it.

INGREDIENTS

  • 125g butter, room temperature.
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup SR flour (3/4 SR flour + 1/4 plain flour)
  • 1/4 cup currants
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 cups of cornflakes. Crush lightly. (3 cups)

About to cream butter and sugar together
Biscuit mixture rolled into balls


METHOD
  1. Preheat oven to 180c or 160c for fan forced. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Using electric beaters to beat butter and sugar until pale and creamy looking.
  3. Beat in egg.
  4. Fold in flour, currants and salt until combined. (once folded, I used my hands to mix the biscuit mixture_
  5. place cornflakes on a large tray and crush lightly. (Again, I used my hands)
  6. Spoon heaped teaspoons of the mixture into the cornflakes. (before placing in the cornflakes, I rolled the spoonful into a ball with my hands) Toss gently in the cornflakes.(I covered them with the cornflakes and pushed down gently) 
  7. Place on a tray, 8cm apart to allow for spreading. (I spaced mine about 2cm apart and they did not spread at all) Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden. (I cooked mine for about 25 minutes)
  8. Once cooked, cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to wire racks. Cool completely before storing. (make a coffee and eat one whilst it is still warm)
  9. Makes 14. (I made 21)
The kids loved them! They have a nice crunch to them. I served them for afternoon tea today with freshly made Apple & Pear juice. 

Ready to be baked
Cooling!

Now, I am off to clean out my juicer before it is time to start dinner. Swimming lessons have been cancelled due to one child recovering from a nasty virus, another child coming down with the nasty virus as well as sporting a neck injury from this morning. You know the old saying - 'when it rains, it pours'!! I don't mind. With school holidays coming up, we will do some make up swimming lessons.

Until next time,
Vicky
