Cornflake Cookies

It will be an understatement to say that my family likes these cookies. They simply ADORE these delicious cookies to every single bit! My sister even asked if I can bake another bottle of these cookies, so that they can happily finish the first bottle without qualms before the start of CNY. Of course, I obliged to her request, happily as well. Hehe... :)

Thanks to Min's Blog for sharing the recipe. :)
