Cornflake Cookies

Couldn't resist trying this recipe using only 1 egg white, since I had a spare egg white from a batch of pineapple tarts that I made.

At first, I thought that the cookies would not bind together and would just fall apart when you pick them up...  You see, after whisking the egg whites and adding in the cereal, the mixture was rather loose.  Thankfully, after its due time in the oven, the cookies firmed up nicely and held its shape. All you get is the crunchy goodness of your favourite cereal  :)

1 egg white
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
dash of salt
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup of your favourite cereal (I used POST Great Grains Crunchy Pecans)

Beat egg white until stiff.
Stir in sugar, vanilla and salt. Beat for a few more seconds.
Combine raisins, oats and cereal.
Mix dry and wet ingredients.
Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto your baking tray.
Bake at 170*C for 10 min or till lightly browned.

So nice of all of you to leave your kind words. Cathy and KL had the fortune (or misfortune?) of trying these. If any of you are giving this recipe a go, you may want to use the normal cornflakes for a crispier treat. I used a heavier oat cereal, so mine turned out chewier, like muesli bars.

I am a happy recipient of yr bakes. It still taste nice even with heavy oat cereal ;)
