Chinese New Year Series - Cornflake Cookies

Still struggling with time to finish making the necessary preparation for Chinese New Year. It is not because I need to make lots of cookies to give away, but rather, I started the baking late. In fact, we will not be spending the first 6 days of the New Year at our Kuala Lumpur home. The first 2 days will be at Daddy's hometown and then we will be flying back to my hometown in East Malaysia. Those goodies are more for the in-laws. (My mom makes very good cookies so she doesn't want mine *sob sob*).

Cornflake Cookies are the must-haves at my house for Chinese New Year. Mom makes very good cornflake cookies. This is her recipe actually. I made some changes to this recipe of mine. Instead of using castor sugar, I have used icing sugar for finer texture. No mixed fruits but raisins and I rolled them rounds instead of scooping into paper cups. The raisins or if you prefer mixed fruits, will give your cookies a mixture in consistency - crunchy + chewy. If you prefer the crunchiness alone, please omit the fruits. Thanks Kirs for prompting me the question about chewiness in cornflake cookies.

May I take this opportunity to wish all a blessed Chinese New Year.
