Cornflake Chocolate Chip (Milk Bar) Cookies
Makes 15 cookies approx
225g Butter 200g light brown sugar, packed 80g granulated sugar 1 large egg ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 250g bread flour ½ teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda 6g salt 270g cornflakes crushed 125g Dark chocolate chips
Place the room temperature butter into a bowl with both sugars and beat tougher for 5 minutes, stop half way and scrape down the sides if needed. Add the egg and vanilla, then continue to mix for a further 3-4 minutes, I know it sound like a long time to mix but it important to achieve an amazing cookie. Now that you have mixed for the full length of time the mixture should be pale, light and fluffy. Add the bread flour, baking powder and bicarb. Scatter in the salt and mix slowly for 15 seconds. Add the crushed corn flakes and chocolate chunks and mix again for 20 seconds as you don’t want to over mix and develop too much gluten. Portion out into 70g portions and place on a tray in the fridge over night. When your ready to bake, pre heat the oven to 175c for 11-13 minutes.
