Cookie dough is a fabulous vehicle for our vices, my favourite being chocolate chips. The other great thing about cookies is how easy they are to throw together. This cornflake cookie recipe with chocolate chips and sultanas is made in just one bowl. In no time, you’ll smell caramelised sugar and warm corn flakes emanating from your kitchen. Warning: you might need to hide them from yourself!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (160 fan-forced; 350 F). Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  2. In the bowl of a mixer beat the softened butter, caster sugar and vanilla until the colour becomes pale yellow and the texture is fluffy. Beat the egg until it’s mixed well throughout the batter. Remove the bowl from the mixer.
  3. Fold in your sultanas, chocolate bits, crushed cornflakes and the salt.
  4. Measure a heaped teaspoon of cookie dough into your hand and roll the dough into a ball. Place the dough balls onto the baking tray leaving 3-4 cm between each one to allow for spreading as they bake.
  5. Make sure your oven has reached the right temperature, then place the cookies into the oven on the centre rack. Baking time will depend on whether you like chewy or crunchy cookies. 12 minutes makes a chewier cookie whereas 15 minutes is more crunchy.
  6. Remove from the oven and let them cool on their trays for at least 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack.

Baking Tips

  • Make sure you really beat together the sugar, egg and butter until pale and creamy. This can take at least 5 minutes of beating.
  • The number of cookies made depends on how large you like your cookies to be!
  • The cookies will continue to harden as they cool, so don’t be alarmed if they’re soft fresh from the oven.
  • Baking time is quite varied depending on your oven and preference for soft or crunchy cookies. Keep an eye on your cookies from the 10-minute mark onwards.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.

    OMG! I’ve been looking for this recipe for forever! I’m an aussie living in the U.S. We made these cookies (or very similar) when I was in day camp in second grade. I had a copy of the recipe for the next few years but I’ve been craving these for at least ten years :-) Thank you!! Can’t wait to make them again!

    Nice! I love cornflake bikkies, inspired idea to add choc chips :)

    Also, I’m always hiding naughty food from myself. The other day I found a packet of M&Ms in the fridge I’d totally forgotten about! Win.

    Awesome! The original recipe didn’t have choc-chips just sultanas, but it’s not far off the Women’s Weekly one my Mum made I reckon.
    Hope they taste the same to you!

    Yum! My mum would make these cookies for us for school lunches, I was always sad that she put sultanas in them, but I love that you’ve added choc-chips. Thanks for the recipe!
