As my friends know, I'm as much a fan of raisins as I am of cranberries, & this time around I combined cranberries with the nuts & chocolate chips! Most of these cookies are destined for a cookie give-away here in our park in a couple of days, but I had to get a head-start on these, 'cause I figured (& rightly so!) these would be some of the best tasting ones around! Absolutely wonderful! So comforting! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
These are yummy cookies. I liked all the crunch, but I have to admit I'm a bit partial to the first cowboy cookie recipe I ever tried. I did like the cornflakes though, I never would have thought to add those!
I substituted whole wheat pastry flour for the all-purpose flour, Earth Balance, Sugar in the Raw for the white sugar, and a little more than 1/4 cup applesauce for the egg. I chose mini vegan chocolate chips, pecans, and raisins for the add-ons. The end results were so tasty! They were soft, but had a bit of a crunch from the corn flakes (I used Special K, because that's what's in my cupboard at the moment, but same idea). There is no way I could make 3 dozen cookies as what this recipe yields so I did alter it to make a dozen. Although when using my small ice-cream scoop, I ended up with 10. Needless to say they were so perfect I made another batch to send to my Air Force hubby who is away on training till September. I know he will love them! Thanks for the recipe share, Katzen:)
