Melting Moments

There are so many versions of these popular biscuits and they’re all absolutely delicious. However, this recipe is my favourite and I have been making it forever. They are simple and quick to make.

The crushed cornflakes give it a crisp outer shell but they’re soft inside. You will find it hard to stop at just one of these munchies. It makes for a wonderful morning or afternoon treat.

This recipe makes around 40-50 biscuits.



PREP: 10 minutes COOK TIME: 15-20 minutes


  • 300 gms flour
  • 180 gms caster sugar
  • 240 gms butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 100 gms cornflakes


Preheat the oven to 180 C.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Crush the cornflakes with a rolling pin until they are like breadcrumbs.

Sieve the flour and baking powder. Cream the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Beat the egg with the vanilla and add it to the creamed mixture. Mix well. Fold in the flour and mix gently.

Using wet hands, shape the mixture into balls. Roll them in the crushed cornflakes and bake about an inch apart until they are slightly golden underneath.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
