This recipe was on the inside of a birthday card sent to my daughter back in 1982. My family enjoyed them immensely. Sometimes I would put 1/2 a bag of milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips in them for a nice change. Try them you might like them. :)
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1 egg, well beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup dry oatmeal
- 1 cup corn flakes
- 1⁄2 cup coconut
- 1⁄2 cup pecans, chopped
- 6 ounces milk chocolate chips or 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Cream butter; add sugars, then egg and vanilla.
- Sift dry ingredients together and add to creamed mixture.
- Add cornflakes, oatmeal, coconut and pecans to mixture.
- Roll into small balls and place about 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet.

I received this card when I was little and we held on to it all these years. This is my absolute favorite cookie dough (yes, I do a little tasting while baking). Delicious!
I was just about to post this recipe myself. I, too, received this card long ago and have the remains of it pasted in my cookbook. Thanks so much for posting it. I usually double the recipe and these always go fast. They're called Crunchy Birthday Sweets on my card. Love them!
