Makes 3 dozen
150g butter at room temperature
1 cup (200g) sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
3 cups (360 g) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
Whip the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well.
Add and stir, the milk and vanilla.
Sift the flour, the baking powder and the salt into the bowl and blend well to form the dough.
Place some cornflakes in another bowl.
Spoon a portion of the dough and roll it over the cornflakes until forming well coated balls. Place the biscuits on well greased baking sheets, well separated from one another.
Bake in a moderate oven until slightly golden. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
