  11. Hi, can I use the cookie cutter instead of using spoon dropping method? Will it affect the texture? Do I need to crushed the cornflakes til fine? Usually if I use cornflakes in my cookies, they will all turn out chewy after 1/2hr. Wonder what is the problem. But your cookies look great which I feel like trying out :) Thank you!--Doreen

    1. You can't use the cookie cutter because you cannot roll out the dough, it's soft. You need to crush the cornflakes but not too fine. I normally crush them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. After forming the dough into a ball, you coat it lightly with more crushed cornflakes. Give it a try. They do stay crunchy even kept for some time in an airtight cookie jar.

    1. Yes you can but need to add baking powder. You can google for the amount of baking powder to add in accordance with the amount of plain flour.

Kaya Slice ~ 咖椰片
