- Always make sure you have the correct measurements. (It is better to have weighing scales or cake measuring cups, to get exact measures).
- Melting moments Cookies has this unique buttery flavor, so make sure you are using good quality butter.
- Cream the butter and sugar well and knead the flour with your hands.
- The dough should be soft and smooth.
- You may line the tray with Parchment paper/ Butter paper to avoid sticking if any.
- Only ¼ tsp of Vanilla Essence should be used. Too much Vanilla will overpower the buttery flavor.
- Do not overwork the dough. Just mix till the flour is well combined.
- Refrigerate the dough for half an hour. It tightens the dough and solidifies the fat and prevents the cookies from spreading too much and keeps it chewy.
- Cornflakes should be crushed coarsely to get that crunchy effect.
- Allow the cookies to cool completely. Warm cookies will be soft and not crunchy.
- Show your kids how to make this cookie, and they will soon be proud junior chefs. It is that easy!
