Servings: 16 cookies
Calories: 150kcal


  • 125 grams butter
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup sultanas (variation idea: use choc chips instead of sultanas)
  • 1 cup SR flour
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • 1 cup extra cornflakes (for rolling)


  • Pre-heat oven to moderate (160 degrees celsius, fan-forced).
  • Lightly grease three baking trays.
  • Put one cup of cornflakes in a baking dish, ready to roll your cookies.
  • Cream butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Add egg and mix again until combined.
  • Fold in sultanas, flour and cinnamon (sifted together) and the two cups of cornflakes.
  • Roll into balls. Each ball should be 45-50 grams. Coat in additional cornflakes.
  • Place balls onto baking trays, flattening a little and leaving enough room for cookies to spread.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a golden brown colour.
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
