  • 1 small Egg
  • 160 gm Flour
  • 15 gm Corn flour

  • 15 gm Cornflakes (crushed)
  • 30 gm Sweet corn fresh
  • 5 gm Baking soda
  • 8 gm Baking powder


  • Cornflakes to roll the cookie dough before baking


  • Preheat the oven to 180℃, line a cookie sheet/baking tray with baking paper.
  • Cream the butter and margarine together until light a creamy. About 2 mins.
  • Add the sugars are beat again until fluffy and pale. About 4 mins.
  • Add the egg and beat until well combined.
  • Add all the dry ingredients and stir together until you have a smooth dough.
  • Using an ice cream scoop portion the dough onto the baking tray. At this stage you can roll he cookie dough in corn flakes before baking.
  • Bake 6 at a time for 10-12 mins.
  • Remove from the baking tray and leave to cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or cooled.


  • You can use brown sugar all the way however they will look darker once baked.
  • You don’t have to roll the cookies in cornflakes before baking but they add a delicious crunch with each bite.
  • If you have an electric hand beater you can use it to cream the fat and sugar together.
  • In stead of the corn meal you can use freeze dried corn (but you will have to make this) or you can blend up raw popcorn kernels until it is a fine powder.
  • You will need a spice grinder or coffee grinder to make it. You can also blend cornflakes until it is coarse and use that instead.
  • If you want to amp up the corn flavor you can toast the corn flakes.
  • You can add half the salt into the dough and sprinkle the top with sea salt flakes.
