Caramel Cornflake Cookies


I got this recipe from Esurientes quite a while ago - and her turned out a lot prettier than mine did this time, they're usually not *quite* as thin and lacy. But it doesn't matter, it's a super tasty cookie and you really should try it. Besides, it takes all of five minutes to stir together.

The original is a christmas cookie, but frankly, it's suitable for any time of the year. Aren't most cookies?

Caramel Cornflake Cookies
Makes about 24

125 g butter
125 ml brown sugar
125 ml white sugar
125 ml coconut flakes
750 ml cornflakes, lightly crushed
1 egg
125 ml chopped hazelnuts

Note that 125 ml is about half a cup - very easy to measure.

Melt the butter. Add all other ingredients, and stir. (See, I told you it wasn't hard!) Drop onto lined cookie sheets, and leave plenty of space in between, since they will spread. Bake at 175°C for 8-10 minutes.

Oh! My favourite cookie! Now I can do them all by myself instead of eating up all the cookies that you have made, Anne! =D

these look like dangerously more-ish cookies that you can pile down without noticing you've worked your way through the whole tray. I've got to try them. :)
