  • Prep: 1 hr
  • Cook: 1 hr
  • Yields: 8 Cookies


260 g plain flour

100 g corn flour

2 tsps baking powder

250 g butter

150 g caster sugar

Pinch of salt

2 egg yolks

2 tsps vanilla essence

50 g cornflakes, crushed plus extra for topping

5 glazed cherries, diced into small pieces


1Preheat oven to 160 C. Line a cupcake baking pan with greaseproof paper.

2Sift flours and baking powder. Add salt and mix well.

3Cream butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg yolk one at a time creaming well before adding another.

4Mix in flour mixture and cornflakes until just combined. Chill dough covered with cling film in the refrigerator for at least 30 mins before baking.

5Spoon a heaping teaspoon of cookie mixture onto prepared tray and sprinkle a few crushed corn flakes on top with a few chopped cherries.
