Cornflake biscuits

Please could someone help with a cornflake biscuit recipe. It is the one that involves rolling balls of biscuit mix in cornflakes, then baking. Thanks.

This is the one my FIL gave me and I think it is out of a old Edmonds book.

Cornflake Cookies

125gr butter
125gr white sugar
1 egg
1tsp baking powder
1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup sultanas or chopped dates.

Preheat oven to 175ºC. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and cream again. Mix in the flour, baking powder and dates (other mixed fruits, raisins or apricots can be used if preferred) Mix until well combined. Roll teaspoonful of dough into cornflakes and place 2" apart on a lightly greased tray. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

Chef_griffo4, Jun 30, 5:27 pm

1+1/3 cups cornFLAKES. really truly sorry<

Chef_rainrain1, Jun 30, 6:22 pm

No worries and thanks for the update l just wanted to check first, l am running low on cornflour but have plenty of cornflakes

it is a shame we can't go back and edit later when you make a typo

Chef_griffo4, Jul 1, 10:20 am

Agreed - there is a time frame of ¼ hour (I think it is) when a post can be edited but sometimes other things require attention during that time and even a minute or two over that time frame is frustratingly too late. :-))

Chef_245sam, Jul 1, 10:25 am

Yes l agree you should be able to go back a day or two later and correct l have learnt to read through the whole thread to check for corrections to a recipe before l make them now
It is so easy to make a typo and not see it till much later or when someone questions you
