This recipe was passed down from my Great Grandma Crawford. It is a simple cookie that goes great with coffee or hot chocolate on a cold winter's day. I've baked them with both butter or Crisco. The butter version is a flatter cookie, similar to the ones my Grandma made. Enjoy these cookies, they are a real treat from my childhood.

  3. Mix four,baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to sugar mixture, mix well.
  4. Add oatmeal, crushed cornflakes, Rice Crispy cereal, and coconut. (When I do this in my mixer the batter is very thick.).

These cookies are very good. Chewy on the inside and slightly crisp on top. I didn't have Corn Flakes so I used all Rice Krispies. I tried this recipe because I could not locate an old recipe of mine for cereal cookies. I'm happy with the new recipe!
