Momofuku Cornflake Cookie Thermomix Style
I’m always looking for a new and interesting cookie recipe for the kids’ lunchboxes. Today I had cookie cravings so I wanted to make something with EXTREME flavour. Something that would satisfy my taste buds and knock the kids’ socks off! The Momofuku Cornflake cookie was just what I was looking for. These cookies are the BOMB!! WARNING, you won’t be able to stop at one… oh and they’re not at all healthy, but they do have oodles of lunchbox appeal.
The cookies include cornflakes, chocolate chip and mini marshmallows for a truly decadent treat. The marshmallow gives the cookie a delicious hit of oozing, sweet goodness, whilst the cornflakes lend a slightly savoury flavour. The recipe has a generous 1 1/4 teaspoon of salt that works really well with the sweet ingredients. So what we have is a sweet, salty and chewy style of cookie. If you like a crunchier cookie just leave it in the oven for a little longer.
Now, I have to mention that the original authentic Momofuku Cornflake cookie recipe has a few more steps. I was actually completely uninspired when I saw how many steps were involved before I would be able to eat one of these babies! The recipe even included a recipe for the cornflake crunch component. I decided I would simplify the recipe and convert it for the Thermomix. So this is my disclaimer, “this is not the authentic Momofuku Cornflake Cookie recipe”, but it’s super delicious and much easier to make.
The only issue I had whilst I was making these babies was the chilling time. The cookies need to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes prior to cooking. I made the mistake of tasting a little bit of the cookie dough and from that moment on the cookies were in dire jeopardy. The cookie dough tasted so good they nearly didn’t even make it to the oven!
Usually, if I make the same cookies twice in a row the biscuits tend to sit abandoned in the cookie jar. No one eats them! Not these cookies, no matter how often I make them they magically disappear.
