SUBSTITUTIONS AND VARIATIONS

Looking for a pop of flavor? Add in some dried fruit like cherries or cranberries.

Want to add in more chocolate? Add different types of chocolate chips or increase the amount.

Don’t have an electric mixer? Make sure to mix really really well by hand in a large bowl. You need the cookie dough to be creamy and smooth.

Can I use a different type of cereal?

You can totally use the basis of this recipe to branch out and make a different type of biscuit. They won’t be cornflake biscuits at that time, but it would still be a fun way to experiment with this recipe.

How do I know when the cookies are done baking?

You just need to pay attention to them in the oven. They’re going to turn a golden brown coloring, and that is your cue that they’re done and ready to be pulled from the oven. They will firm up some on the wire rack while they’re cooling.

Can I add a topping to these cookies?

If you want to drizzle some melted chocolate chips on top or even some caramel, go for it! This would be a super fun way to add a sweet taste and texture easily to this delicious biscuit recipe.

Can I freeze cornflake biscuits for later?

You bet. If you want to add them to the freezer, do so. Just keep them in a freezer-safe bag or container and eat them within a few months’ time. To thaw them from the freezer, move them to the fridge and give them a few hours to thaw.
