These cookies are amazing! The crushed cornflakes add a great crunchy texture. My family devoured them!

Top Review by AcadiaTwo

These cookies were 5-STAR in taste and richness! They would be even better if my DD actually used PB-cups. She swapped out the PB-cups for chocolate chips instead. I love the crunchy texture.
