So, I want to clear something up before I get too far ahead of myself.

I have posted a cornflake cookie recipe before. 

I may have even said it was the best recipe.

But I was terribly wrong.

You see, lately I've been on a mission.

I wanted to create THE ULTIMATE Bakery Style Cornflake Cookie Recipe. So over the last few weeks, my kitchen has smelt like butter and sugar, my fingers have been sticky, there have been 10,000 mixing bowls in the dishwasher and my bloodstream is pretty much 98% cookies, but OHHHHH did I achieve my mission.

These Cornflake Cookies really are the ultimate cornflake cookies. I know what you're thinking. "Can you make cornflake cookies gluten free and still create the best ever recipe?". Yes, my friend... you certainly can.

These cookies are soft and fluffy - but crunchy at the same time. The cookies crisp up to form delicious chewy edges and the cornflakes that coat the outside and fill the insides of the cookies are crunchy and chewy and addictively delicious.

Sure, these cookies are a little bit messy (the cookie dough is more like a batter than a dough - but look past that and keep going because you WILL NOT regret it). But they bake up in minutes and before long, you'll have a cookie jar full of delicious cookies.

Actually, that's a lie... these cookies may never even make it into the cookie jar because you'll want to eat them right away.

Even better is how simple this recipe is. 

All you'll need to make them is: 
  • Gluten free flour (regular plain flour is fine if you don't need them gluten free)
  • Butter
  • Sugar
  • Cornflakes 
  • Baking Powder
  • One Egg
  • Vanilla Extract 
That's it. You may even have all of those ingredients in your fridge and pantry right now - so let's get baking!

The Best Gluten Free Cornflake Cookies Recipe - These bakery style cornflake cookies are seriously easy to make, with soft fluffy centres and crisp chewy edges. A classic, old fashioned cookie recipe that will become your new family favourite. Add raisins, sultanas, chocolate chips or enjoy them as is!

ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (100g) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (100g) caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (120g) gluten free plain flour, sifted
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups (75g) cornflakes*

instructions:

How to cook The Best Cornflake Cookies Recipe (Gluten Free!)

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/355F.
  2. Line 3 cookie sheets with baking paper and set aside. 
  3. In a mixer, beat your butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add your eggs and vanilla, mixing until just combined.
  5. Add in your flour, baking powder and 1 cup of your cornflakes, mixing until just combined.
  6. Add your remaining 1 1/2 cups of cornflakes to a small bowl and set aside.
  7. Spoon heaped tablespoons of your dough (it will be quite soft!) out of your bowl and drop into your bowl of cornflakes. Covering the dough in cornflakes, shape the dough into a ball and press onto your lined baking sheets.
  8. Repeat with your remaining dough, placing 4 cookies onto each baking sheet, leaving plenty of room for your cookies to spread.
  9. Bake your cookies for 12-15 minutes or until golden and the edges are set. They will firm up as they cool so don't be concerned if they look too soft.
  10. Once your cookies have firmed up, place them onto a cooling rack to cool completely before storing in an airtight jar or container at room temperature for up to a week.

NOTES:

*If you need your cookies to be gluten free, make sure you use gluten free cornflakes! I used Coles brand gluten free cornflakes for the pictured version, but also use Kelloggs gluten free cornflakes or Woolworths brand gluten free cornflakes.

  1. I'm seriously so intrigued by cornflake cookies :P Definitely giving these a try once I locate gluten-free cornflakes.

    There's a new French patisserie near my dad's house and their ham and gruyere croissant is to die for! That's my current fav bakery treat!
