IN A BAKING MOOD?

These cookies are really easy to make, particularly if you have a food processor because it takes the hassle out of creaming the butter and sugar.

After adding the flour and cocoa I found the mixture too dry, so needed to add a bit more melted butter. Probably because I didn't soften it first, but will remember for next time.



CHOCOLATE AFGHANS



Ingredients:
  • 200 g butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups plain baking flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups cornflakes

Chocolate Icing:

1  cup icing sugar
1 heaped tablespoon cocoa powder 
1 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-3 Tablespoons boiling water


Preheat oven to 180 C. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flour & cocoa. Stir into creamed mixture. Fold in cornflakes. Spoon mounds of mixture onto a greased oven tray, gently pressing each mound together. Bake for 15 minutes or until set. Ice with chocolate icing when cold, decorate with walnut if desired. Makes 20
