I love the peanut butter in these wonderful cookies. My friend Jenn makes these for herhusband. One day She bought me a half a dozen corn flake cookies and I loved them. I had to have the recipe and I tryed it and it was easy.
- In a large sauce pan combine corn syrup and sugar.
- Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
- Stir in the peanut butter.
- Add the corn flakes.
- Stir until corn flakes are covered with syrup mixture.
- Drop tablespoons on wax paper.
Does this recipe ever bring me back to childhood! We called these "Thumbprint Cookies" because as my mom would drop them from a spoon, I would press my thumb into each one to form a well. We then filled them with raspberry preserves. Thanks for posting! PS...One thing I didn't mention was to watch that you remove the liquid from the heat as soon as it comes to a boil. The longer you boil the liquid, the harder and more candy like your cookies will be.
My sister in law makes these! I was happy to find this recipe! The only difference is she makes them with special k cereal. Thanks for the recipe!
My dad told me that he used to eat these as a kid and showed me how to by his memory of what he knew on how they were made ^^ <br/>So yummy!
