Assalamu’alaikum, greetings peeps. I am here to announce that I have discovered the sad, sad truth that is 9-5 (roughly ) office life; sitting-in-front-of-a-computer in air-conditioning life; the thing that most people do when they grow up: work. I am fortunate to at least have plans to continue my studies next year — it is something far more exciting, interesting, varied and wonderful to look forward to. But then again, all this pessimism is probably just me.
I have to say though, I can now see why some people would love to be full-time housewives. Such simplicity. Such freedom. (I guess. I’ve never been a house
wife person, nor has my mother for a long time. Surely they have things other than housework, TV and children to occupy their time? )
Anyhow. Oh-so-housewifey recipe post this time because I am busy and weekends have never ever felt shorter. These are Eid
cookies goodies snackthings; a classic, the kind that my brothers shamelessly gobble up at other people’s houses during Eid, to the point where the host has to go and refill the snack jar there and then. True story.
I don’t know where this recipe came from, likely somewhere in the interwebs, but all I have currently is a file called cornflakes.doc and no information as to the source of the contents. Apologies.
Ingredients are only:
Some people add other ingredients like nuts, sesame, or cherry decoration-y sort of things, which we all know aren’t at all important. The paper muffin liners aren’t essential either — I’ve made these before just by spreading the gooey flakes on a (lined) baking tin and then breaking them into pieces when they’ve cooled. Dainty bite-sized servings don’t go with my brothers anyway.
Done. If the snack remains chewy and/or is not crunchy enough, try leaving it in the oven for longer, then leaving it to cool longer, and/or adjust the recipe ratio. Likely too much honey.
