Recipe adapted from 吴金燕-自己做饼干真简单 Handmade Biscuits and Crackers


60g (1/4 cup) Unsalted Butter
60g (1/4 cup) Shortening
80g (1/3 cup) Peanut Butter
70g (1/2 cup) Icing sugar
1 Egg
300g (2 ½ cups) Cake Flour
100g (2-3 cups) Chocolate Corn Flakes (I used 50g Coco Crunch and 50g Corn Flakes)
50g (1/2 cup) Almond Flakes


Preheat oven to 170C-180C (325-350F), set the rack on upper level of oven.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine unsalted butter, shortening and peanut butter, then mix well to soften.

Sieve in icing sugar and beat till mixture is fluffy.

Pour in beaten whole egg in batches and mix well.

Sieve in cake flour and mix well.

Toss in chocolate corn flakes and almond flakes. Mix well to form dough. Divide dough into 30g each portion (approximately ¼ cup)

Roll each portion into ball, then flatten slightly. Arrange on baking tray.

Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes till golden brown.

Cook’s Notes:

1. Use the chunky type of peanut butter in this recipe for a crunchier bite.

2. The chocolate corn flakes may be crushed beforehand, so that they can be easily added into the dough.

    I live in New Zealand. What is your “cake flour” – we have plain flour, high grade flour (used for fruit cakes) self raising flour (this has a raising agent already in it). Wholemeal flour,corn or maize flour (very fine for recipes like melting moments). Are any of these like your cake flour?

    LINDY,if you google cake flour, wou will see that it can be made by taking a cup of all purpose bread flour and substituting 2 T of it with Cornstarch. It makes the cookies lighter. Google will take you to a lot of good flour sites.

    Hi, I do not have Shortening at home, may I know what can I replace with? I heard Shortening is not good for health, is that true?
