I as at the General's house for a brunch and these were so good I had to ask for the recipe! They're sweet and salty - a favorite combination of mine. My son asked me to make them the other day and I searched and couldn't find anything like them so figured I'd post it to keep the recipe alive. Hope you enjoy!

- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 1 cup flour

- 2 cups corn flakes
- 1 egg
- cook bacon till crisp - then break into small pieces.
- Beat together butter and sugar till fluffy, beat in egg, combine dry ingredients and mix into butter mixture.
- Add bacon, corn flakes, and raisins and stir in by hand.
- Drop by teaspoonful onto UNgreased cookie sheet 2" apart.
- Bake 350 for 15 minutes. Cool 1 minutes, move to rack.
These were great. But I would definitely cut the raisins in half as they were overwhelming and I wanted to taste the bacon more. :) Also, they get HUGE when you bake them, so keep the batter balls small. Thank you!
This was a great addition for a breakfast in a bag, to carry to Churchill Downs to watch the Derby contenders practice, very early in the morning. The children liked them, and along with juice, a hard boiled egg, and banana, was a decent nutrient with little fuss or muss. Next time I would add more bacon and less sugar, but that's not a criticism, just a personal preference.
I was really disappointed w/ this recipe. They sounded very intriguing and different but they weren't anything special. Couldn't taste the bacon so if you make them, I would definitely add more bacon if you're hoping to taste it in the cookies. I wrote a review last night that said I wouldn't be making these again but after having one this morning, I am willing to give them another try. This is one cookie that tasted better the next day instead of right out of the oven!
