Baking: Choc-chip cornflake bikkies

Had a good day in the kitchen yesterday after helping the PC move in on Saturday - a good solid clean and organise of the cupboards and all the pots and pans and assorted plastic containers. (Oh yes, the fun never stops in the Flanders house).

One of the things we came across was a bag of slightly old choc-bits (but really, does chocolate every really go off?) and so in saying that they were fine I pretty well set myself up to prove it and the great bikkie challenge was on.

They turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. Thanks for the recipe PC and the advice. (Beating butter and sugar together is more complex than you'd think :)

250g Butter
1 cups caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 eggs
As many choc bits as you want (I put in about 150g)
2 cups self raising flour
5 and 1/2 cups cornflakes

Beat the butter and sugar together
Add the vanilla essence and eggs and beat until fluffy

Add the flour and mix it in well with your hands
Add the choc bits and cornflakes (don't crush up the cornflakes too much)

Bake on a greased tray at 180C for 20 mins.

This made about 25 biscuits (some might call them cookies)
