makes 3 dozen...i made o cornflakes and it was just as good

This is a wonderful recipe with an amazing flavour! I used margarine instead of the butter, and omitted the cornflakes (only because I didn't have any on hand). Instead of the lemon drizzle icing, I used a pastry bag to pipe melted chocolate in stripes across the cookie & a big rosette in the middle to stick a whole peanut on top. My husband cannot get enough of these cookies! I also won 3rd prize at the County Fair with this recipe in a contest sponsored by one of our local peanut growers!!
