Eggless Corn Flakes Cookies

The other cookie I tried for the Baking Partners challenge is the corn flakes cookies selected by Priya of Priya's Versatile Recipes from the book Baking- A Common Sense Guide. Again I tried the eggless version. The cookies were so nice, I couldn't stop munching them. Even hubby liked it very much. I also packed some for my hubby's friend. The cookies were very crispy and the corn flakes gave a nice crunch to the cookies. While preparing these cookies I added milk and apple cider vinegar as the egg substitute and added extra flour. I should say that they were perfect. Priya suggested adding black raisins but as I didn't have them, I added dry apricots instead. I would like to thank Priya for this wonderful recipe.
