rocky crunchy cookies

My husband loves to try different variety of cereals ,specially cornflakes and this time he brought crunchy cornflakes which was little sweet as they were honey flavoured but he didnt like the sweet taste so he brought another huge box of plain regular ( original )cornflakes and he mixed the two together so that the sweetness was balanced and now daily he was having it and few days back when i saw the boxes very little quantity as left so the other day i emptied the dabba and transfered the little portion in a smaller container & was about to throw the two big boxes suddenly i saw the recipes given on them and liked one of them which was eggless and quite healthy & easy ,i  replaced sultanas as i really dont like them and making these cookies more healthy and crunchy because of oats,it really turned out well and my first batch was over in couple of days so i had to make some more again for the party.So guys please have a look on your cornflake boxes before throwing or else you may miss yum yum recipes ;) Sending this over to chaitra's bread mania event.
ingredients :
11/2 cup cornflakes ( i used 2 varieties 1 cup crunchy honey cornflakes and 1/2 cup plain cornflakes )
13/4 cup plain flour/maida
110 gms soft butter
1/2 cups sultanas ( though i susbsituted them by 1/2 cup rolled oats )
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 tsps baking powder
method :
Preheat oven to 180c.Beat butter and sugar together till light and fluffy.Add sifted flour,baking pwd and mix,add cornflakes and oats gently and make a stiff dough using the milk.Place heaped teaspoons of mixture on greased baking tray and bake for 10-15 mins .( please keep checking it may take more or less time depending on the oven ).Let it stand for few mins and then remove from the tray as it may be soft when hot but gradually turns hard when cooled.These cookies can be stored in airtight containers for couple of weeks.
