UPDATED POST ON 7 January 2015

I found that it is much crispier without the cups. It will spread outwards a bit but very crispy and nice to eat.

I have also made some minor amendments to the recipe to enhance the crispiness.

INTRODUCTION

Nestum is a baby cereal and has its unique aromatic fragrance..Since young, I love Nestum. Even until today, Nestum is still my choice of breakfast cereals..

Using baby cereal to make into cookies will definitely yield an aromatic cookie… I have added milk powder to enhance the flavour and I am sure readers will concur with me that milk powder blends well with this baby cereal.

When the cookies were just out of the oven, I was rather shocked that the cookies’ exterior seem to be very hard. I am worry that something went wrong. When it cooled down completely and when i take a first bite, I found it is an enjoyment after breaking the crust and proceed to bite the interior .. It is addictive and asking my kids to try and both concurred that it is a nice cookie.. At least they like it.

Round shaped cookies are more difficult to bake but if you prepare the cookies in a disc or saucer shape, it will be easier to become crispy and shorten the baking time considerably. As such, this cookie need some close monitoring as the baking time depends very much on your shape and oven temperature.

Note:

  • Temperature control is important and timing will very much depend on the shape of the cookies. Disc or sauce shape cookies are crispier than round cookies and timing will be shorten considerably (about 10-15 minutes) .

  • Instead of baby cereal, breakfast cereals such as corn flakes can be used. However, the corn flakes will need to be pound until fine they resembling the size of Nestum baby cereals.

CONCLUSION

It is a crispy cookie which is different from the other Chinese New Year cookies that melts in the mouth. The first bite felt some hard crust as you continue to bite, you will feel the softer inner part full of cereal fragrance and the second cookie should be in your hand by then.. Haha … For those who like baby cereal like me, you may want to give it a try.

      Salted. As quantity is not much, you can use hand to beat until light. Milk powder you can use any brand including kid’s. I used the cheapest adult brand available in the market .
