Looking for a super fast, super easy and yet delicious cookies to make?
Well look no further.
Of all the cookies that I've made, I have to say these are the easiest. It takes no time to make with just a handful of ingredients. Most important thing is, they're delicious! Not overly sweet, just the way I like them.
If you're thinking of using up the cornflakes that you have stored and don't know what to do with them, use them in this recipe. Get your kids to help in, it's going to be fun. Well, the definition of fun is of course very subjective when kids are involved.
In Malaysia, these cookies are commonly served during festivities. Yes, as simple as they are..they contribute in representing joy and happiness during those festive days. Apart from these cookies, I've made several of Malaysian traditional festive cookies, make sure to look for them in the search box.
If you ever made any of my recipes, please share your creations with me. I would really love to see them. Tag me in Instagram. I'm at elmundoeats or simply use #elmundoeats. I'm also in Twitter at elmundoeats. Thanks!
