Chinese New Year Cornflake Cookies

i am a BIG fan of cornflake cookies and one of the best i had was bought from a noodle stall in an old wet market in Macpherson. the wet market is already demolished. i wonder how many of my peers visit wet market these days but typically they have a hawker section and the market section. hawker section sells cooked food and many elders would hang around in the early morning, chatting over a cup of Kopi. sometimes, during lunar new year, domestic bakers will distribute their goodies with the stalls for sale.

last year, i tried three cornflake cookies recipes and finally found the one i like - it is crunchy and "su" at the same time. "su" is a chinese word and i am not sure how to describe it here. it feels like the cookie breaks apart easily.. i love this recipe and here are the cookies again for the lunar new year..
