Cornflake Marshmallow Cookies

It is no secret that cookies are not my favourite thing.  I don't eat them often and I am not really good at making them either, although if there was any cookie that would change my mind about that it would be these cornflake marshmallow cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar.

These cookies are so fun and so different than a regular chocolate chip cookie.  And that cornflake crunch is amazing straight off the baking tray, even better in the cookies though!

16 tbs butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 cups Cornflake Crunch
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
1 1/4 cups mini marshmallows

Cornflake crunch
5 cups cornflakes
1/2 cup milk powder
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
9 tbs butter, melted

To make the cornflake crunch, preheat oven to 275.

Place the cornflakes in a large bowl and crush with your hands. Mix in the milk powder, sugar and salt.  Pour in the butter and stir until combined.

Place cornflake mixture on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes, leave to cool.

To make the cookies, put the butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together for 2 minutes.  Add the eggs and vanilla and beat for 8 minutes.

Reduce the mixer to low and add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Mix just until combined.  Add in the cornflake crunch, chocolate chips and marshmallows and mix for just a minute.

Using a third cup measure, portion out the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.  Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat oven to 375 and bake chilled cookies for 18 minutes.
