November 14, 2012 in baked goods
My mom an dad has a whole ritual baking and filling those cookie tins and I just love listening to their cheerful banter, but through it all, they get the job done.
You will see all the recipes are huge, they have been doubled and tripled for my big family, You can halve or double as you please, it somehow always works.
Peanut Butter and Cornflakes Cookies
4 x 250 ml Kellogg’s Cornflakes
2 x 250 ml oats
4 x 250 ml sugar
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 x 250 ml shredded dry coconut
4 x 250 ml cake flour
4 heaped T peanut butter
500 g butter
4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 ml salt
Cream butter and sugar in your mixer and add the eggs. Mix well. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Mix the bicarb with a little milk and mix in too. Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Allow to rest, overnight the best. Roll in little balls the size of a walnut and place on a baking sheet, which has been prepared with Spray n Cook. Allow enough space between each cookie as it spreads slightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 180 C. Cool and store until Christmas.
