These days I see more and more people purchasing cookies and cakes for the Chinese New Year celebrations. Although, it is convenient to just get a few tins of cookies off the shelves, please beware that most of the commercially made cookies and cakes are prepared with sub-standard ingredients that may ruin your health.

This year, perhaps you would want to make the cookies yourself – for your family or as gifts for your loved ones. Baking is such fun – especially if you can get your friends, children or colleagues to join you in the baking session.

This Choc Chip Cornflakes Cookies recipe make look simple –the Q.B.B. ghee brings out the buttery flavor and makes the cookies crisp too.

60 g mini chocolate chips

100 g cornflakes, crushed lightly
