I used to leave small cups filled with water outside my window and eagerly get up just to see if it was frozen.I remember running to the strawberry patch checking for strawberries each and every day and trying to keep my friends away from the raw strawberries lest they pick a few to taste it!
And of course waking up late to the wonderful aroma of mom's breakfast dish and lunch dishes being prepared.The snuggling in the bed for an extra 5 minutes even after I was fully awake is something I miss even today!
And holidays also means a lot of goodies.Luckily I am not missing those as I have been busy baking cakes ,cookies and breads for the bakeathon event.The kids are loving it so much that Lil Angel comes home each evening asking me what new thing I have baked that day!
Today's post is this super addictive cookies. We, the kids and me, literally fought over these cookies. The only thing I regret is that I did not bake a large batch!
Adapted from - Sharmi's Passion
Corn flakes-2 cups
Maida/ All Purpose flour- 1/2 cup
Cocoa powder- 2 teaspoons
Powdered Sugar- 1/4 cup
Butter - 1/4
Salt- 1/8 teaspoon
Baking powder- 1/8 teaspoon
Roughly crush the cornflakes and keep aside.Sift together maid, salt and cocoa powder.
In a bowl , cream together sugar and butter till fluffy.Add the flour,1/2 cup crushed corn flakes.Mix together and knead to a somewhat stiff dough.If the dough is too crumbly, add a few drops of milk/ water.Refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes.
Pinch out small balls. Take the remaining crushed corn flakes in a plate . Gently press the cookie balls,flatten in lightly and coat it in the cornflakes. Place at a distance of 1" between the cookies in a greased / lined cookie tray and bake at 180 degree C for 12- 15 minutes/ the sides are slightly brown. The cookies will be soft when fresh out of the oven but will get crisper after cooling.So do not be tempted to over bake the cookies.Once the cookies are done, remove from the cookie tray and cool on a wire rack.
Serve the cookies after they cool down / store them in air tight container.
- If the dough is too stiff after refrigeration,add a few drops of warm water / milk and knead one more.
- Do not over bake. They will turn out to be extra crispy..
