Our daughter, then somewhere in between 11 and 12, was one of the reasons I started my blog. She was convinced that my cooking needed to be out there and shared with others. She therefore used to have this feeling that she was an important part of my blogging effort and would often find the time to come sit with me to see what I was blogging about.
Eggless Cornflakes Cookies
(Slightly adapted from Tarla Dala's recipe)
Ingredients:100 gm butter, softened1/2 cup castor sugar1 cup all purpose flour3/4 tsp baking powder1 tbsp lemon juice1 tsp vanilla essence1 cup crushed cornflakes, not powderedMethod:Beat the sugar and butter till quite smooth. If the sugar stays granular it contributes to the texture of the cookies. Add all the other ingredients and blend well into a dough.Pinch off pieces, roll and slightly flatten. Place on greased or non-stick tray and bake at 180 C for about 20-25 minutes till golden brown. Cool on a rack and store (if they last).Akshaya forgot to put in the baking powder but they still turned out good, perhaps a bit flatter than usual.This recipe makes about 12 cookies.
