    LonghornMama's Note:

    My grandmother always has these cookies in the cookie jar. For a nut-free version, I use 1/2 c extra corn flakes. Can also sub bran flakes, wheat flakes, Total cereal, whatever you have on hand. Makes a very thin, crunchy but chewy cookie. One of my husband's favorites.

      These cookies are heavenly! I used Frosted Flakes because that was all I had on hand. Since they are already coated with sugar I used half the amount of sugar the recipe calls for. On my first batch I mixed in the cereal without breaking it up. However, the cereal flakes came out a bit chewy for my taste. So on the second batch I whizzed them for a couple of turns in the food processer before adding them to the mix. My cookies didn't spread as much as the cookies in any of the other photos. Then I realized I misread the measure and had used less than a 1/4 cup of butter (duh). Nonetheless, they turned out fantastic and perhaps a little healthier. Thanks so much for sharing! My kids will love you forever.

      I have been searching for a cookie my husband remembers from childhood, and he belives this is it only with chocolate chips. My parents and sister's family also really enjoy this cookie. Mine turned out like Nimrod Cooks- thin, chewy, and crispy. I did slightly crush the cornflakes before measuring, and that made them a little too dry (I was the only one who noticed). In the future, I will make sure to measure first and crush after. Thank you!
