In another medium-sized bowl, mix flour with salt and baking powder well using a whisk. Set aside.

Take another mixing bowl and cream softened butter together with white and brown sugars until light and fluffy.

Stir gently until evenly distributed throughout the dough cornflakes are added.

Measure out tablespoonful or cookie scoopfuls onto prepared baking sheet, giving some space in between each cookie.

8. Flatten each cookie by pressing it gently with the back of a spoon or your fingers.

9. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until they are golden brown around the edges.

Tips for Successful Baking:

– Avoid overworking the mixture after adding dry ingredient; this results to tough cookies

– They usually set properly without breaking if baked some few more minutes on baking sheet after removal from an oven.
