This is a recipe I learnt from a friend who always surprises me with her unique recipes. It was some time ago when we met and created this irresistible biscuits with her guidence. I had never heard or thought of using cornflakes in such biscuits. I used to add various kinds of cheese into such biscuit dough, but never cornflakes. Cereal is not something I am used to indeed. I almost never buy it when shopping as it is not a part of our eating habit. I love to have big breakfast with cheese, olives, tomatoes, french toast or eggs in different versions, honey or jam, which is a typical Turkish breakfast. I must say that I learnt what cereal is and how it is consumed from American or Europian movies or TV serials when I was a child. It can be said that cereal doesn’t have a long history in Turkey and a very small percentage of people have it for breakfast here. Anyway, these biscuits are superb! It’s great to feel the crunchy cornflakes inside when chewing. So I guess, I will visit cereal aisles at markets more often to make these addictive biscuits.
Make a mixture from yogurt, olive oil, salt and chili powder. You can decrease or increase the amount of chili acording to your taste.
Take small balls from the dough and roll them out on the counter. Cut them with cookie cutters.
Lay the baking sheet in an oven tray and place the biscuits on it. Then spread egg yolk and sprinkle nigella sativa seeds on each.
Cook them for 25 minutes and then let them cool on wire rack.
