Methods / Prepration

  • Step 1
  • Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

  • Use electric beaters to beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy. Beat in the egg. Fold in the flour, currants and salt and mix until well combined.
  • Step 3
  • Place the cornflakes in a bowl. Spoon slightly heaped tablespoonfuls of the butter mixture into the cornflakes. Toss the mixture gently in the cornflakes to coat and form balls.
