Chocolate Raisin Cornflake Cookie

This is my new baking gadget, Cake Divider.  It’s a gift from my niece, Alicia who bought it from Takashimaya.   Thanks, Alicia.

Cookie time!  The original recipe is a ‘Thick & Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies with Corn Flakes’ by Cookie Madness.  This recipe I am sharing has been modified to replace pecan with raisins.  The combination of rolled oat, cornflakes, chocolate chip and raisins were just right.  You can feel the crisp when you bite into the cookies where the cornflakes were and at the same time you get this chewiness from the raisins.  Yum Yum, that’s what my neighbour’s six year old daughter said.   I’ll definitely bake this again, 180dpapa liked it very much.

Chocolate Raisin Cornflake Cookie

Ingredients

3 1/2 cups plain flour
1 tbsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup ( 230g ) butter, salted
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup caster sugar
1 large egg
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups corn flakes, lightly crushed after measuring
1 1/2 cups rolled oat
1 cup raisin soaked with rum
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method

1. Mix flour, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside

2. In a mixer, cream butter and both sugars, then beat in egg and vanilla.  Stir in oil.

3. Add flour mixture and stir until it is almost fully incorporated, then stir in the cornflakes, rolled oats, raisins and chocolate chips.  Mix well but not to overmix.

4. Chill dough for at least an hour ( see tips below )

5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. ( I used 170 degree C. oven set to multi-cooking with fan for baking 2 trays of cookies at the same time )

6. Scoop up with a spoon and form into golf ball size.  Space 3 inches apart on baking sheets and bake for 13-15 minutes.

7. Cool on a wire rack and store in airtight container.

Tips : I will scoop the dough into a container and chill in the fridge, then transfer them onto a baking tray to bake.  Alternatively, if you have sufficient space in the fridge, you can scoop the dough directly onto the baking tray and chill (this saves you sometime in transferring).
