*Just a Quick not before we start, Mr. Linky is not working due to the OVERLOAD of people signing up, I ask that this NOT stop you from participating, PLEASE just put your link in my comment section, and your page will be visited, I apologize for the inconvince, I should have Mr. Linky up and running by next week*

Welcome to the Second Week of Kids In The Kitchen Thursdays
Here we go, this week Lu and I are making cornflake cookies, I got this idea when thinking about the cornflake Christmas wreath cookies that people make, and I remembered eating, so I looked on the internet for them and up popped just a regular everyday cornflake cookie, so I sat out on a mission to make them, and after 2 weeks of thinking about it, and after purchasing cornflakes *which I know won't be eaten in this house as just cereal because they aren't sweet enough* Lu and I made them.

First you will need to Preheat your oven to 325 degrees
next you'll need to beat 3 EGG WHITES until they are stiff (not your arm the egg whites of course)

Add to that 1 and 1/4 CUP OF SUGAR

and 1/4 TSP. SALT
as well as 1/2 TSP VANILLA, mix well (I used my handheld blender)
In a SEPERATE bowl put 1 and 1/2 CUPS OF CORNFLAKES (I actually added a extra handful, so I'd say I used 2 cups)
To that bowl also add 2 CUPS OF COCONUT and gently mix together with hands or spoon whichever you prefer, we used our hands of course!
To the Cornflake/Coconut mixture, ADD the Eggwhite mixture.
and stir with big spoon (I must say it is gooey and hard for a young child to stir the mixture fully, so I took over after a min or so)

After this step you will drop small spoon fulls of cookie mixture on waxed paper and put into your preheated oven for 15-18 mins.
Your finish product will be a light and fluffy cookie, was pretty tasty, very different but none the less good!
