Melting Moments Cookies

I am sure you would have seen these cookies in your local bakery store. These are white round cookies with a coating of crushed cornflakes, not very sweet and a great accompaniment with your evening cup of tea or coffee. I remember these cookies from my childhood – not from the bakery store but from my mom’s kitchen…:) I don’t remember eating store bought cookies as a child – it was always made at home and we used to love going through mom’s store room to find out all the goodies she used to make. I now make these once in a while for my kids and they also enjoy them the way I do..:)

If your butter is at room temperature, then it just about takes 30 min from start to finish. That is one thing I love about many of these recipes from my mom. They are not just simple to prepare, but also quick!
