When I’m trying to figure out what to bake each Christmas, whether something looks like it would be tasty is always the first and most important criterion. Once that threshold is passed, however, I’m always looking for something with color and texture that will add a little dash to the cookie tins, and I also like to try recipes that are different from what I already prepare.
This recipe, which I found on the www.dinneratthezoo.com website, meets all of those requirements. The cookies are made with cornflakes, which sounds intriguing, they look great, and they are “no bake” cookies that supposedly can be made in 10 minutes — which is something I’ve not tried before.
