this was another missing recipe of mine and here it is!! i always made mine with corn flakes and i did again. just as wonderful as i remember!!!!i just put the recipe in my grandbabies cookbook. YUM
What a wonderful cookie! The only change I made to the recipe was using Corn Flakes instead of Special K, because that was all I had on hand. They have a great flavor and I like the added cherry on top, as it makes them look very festive. Perfect for a holiday cookie tray! I send some to PaulaG for the Cookie Swap, so she can enjoy these too. Thanks Rose of Sharon for posting this great recipe!
