Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Cornflake Cookies

Today I made these cornflake cookies, a recipe I have not done for years. It is given to me by my sister-in-law Vivien who is  a fantastic baker/cook. My cornflake cookies are of different sizes and I always wonder how Vivien  managed to make hers very round and of the same size.  Well, to me as long as they taste the same, I am perfectly happy. Anyway thhis is for Aishah who has been asking for it and now she can make it for the coming Hari Raya festival.  The cookies are crunchy and light.
