Cornflake (Goofie) Cookies

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is a recipe my mum used to make, years later she made these every week for my husband who loved them. Now my daughter makes them for him. When we were young we knew them as Goofies! Easy and tasty! Any mixed fruit can be used, we often even put nuts in.

What a wonderful cookie Tisme, I can certainly understand why these are your husband's favorite cookies. They were my favorites from all the cookie that I made for my Christmas platters this year.

I used dried blueberries, dried cranberries and dried cantaloupes, they are awesome in these cookies. So yummy, try these babies you won't be disappointed. Thanks for sharing.

These cookies are so cool! I love how they stay so light, fluffy and soft yet they have the outer crunch from the cornflakes. Also love the fact that they make a perfect size batch for our family of six to enjoy without having cookies calling my name all night long-LOL. I chose to use dried cherries for the fruit however; I can see so many other fruits being used in these little gems. Will definitely be making these again.
