This is a very easy biscuit to make using a simple dough recipe then rolling in cornflakes for extra flavour and texture.
2 cups (250g) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups (375g) icing sugar
2 egg yolks
2 teaspoon vanilla essence
125g cornflakes, slightly crushed
glace cherries, cut into quarters for garnish
10 min › Cook:
15 min › Ready in:
Sift flour and salt together.
Cream butter and icing sugar in a mixer at medium speed for about 3 minutes.
Slowly add in the egg yolks, vanilla essence and sifted flour. Scrape the sides of the mixing bowl with plastic spoon to make sure everything is well blended.
Place the cornflakes into a shallow flat container. Shape the dough into small balls. Roll it with cornflakes and place a cut cherry on top as garnish.
Bake on greased baking tray for 15 minutes at 200 degrees C.
I found this a great recipe. I added 2 whole eggs in stead of just the yolks and added an a cup of S/Raising flour so they are not so buttery.. I also flatten them when coating with cornflakes.. It makes 6 dozen good sized biscuits. I also add macadamia and white chocolate...
