Cornflake Cookies

Over the past few months, I’ve had many conversations with Lena, a good friend of mine from SCB, and many of these conversations revolved around food and recipes we like. A few weeks ago, I told her about the oatmeal cookies I made, and she gave me the idea of making cornflake cookies. I had never heard of these cookies in my life. But they sounded similar to oatmeal cookies, and so I decided to take a shot at them this weekend.

They were crispy, bursting with the flavours of natural goodness, and gorgeously rich. OMG.
