These are the best chocolate chip cookies ever because of their unusualness. This cookie combines oats, nuts, spices, and chocolate, all for a wonderful and savory treat!
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1⁄4 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon mace
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄8 teaspoon powdered clove
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 cup corn flakes
- 3 cups quick-cooking raw oatmeal
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350F and grease cookie sheets.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and spices; set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until smooth.
- Mix in milk, vanilla, and beaten eggs.
- One at a time, stir in the cornflakes, oats, dry ingredients (from medium bowl), coconut, chocolate chips, and walnuts (if using), just until each addition is incorporated.
- Drop dough by well rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.
- Bake 10-12 minutes, then let stand for 2 minutes before removing to let cool on baking racks.
Pretty much made these great tasties as given, but I did a coarse crushing of the corn flakes! Great combo of flavors & a very nice change from the usual chocolate chip cookies! Shared at a weekly group we attend! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]
These cookies are great. Lots of flavor and great texture. I baked the cookies 12 minutes. I made half the recipe and got 48 cookies. Instead of using 3/4 cup sugar I used 1/2 cup. It's enough. I used unsweetened coconut. And instead of walnuts, I used pecans. Thanks TexanMorgan :) Made for PAC Spring 2010 http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0
the unbaked dough of these cooking is amazing it is definately a 5 star but the baked product isnt as delicious. it is still pretty good though. the cornflakes are the best part in the dough but cooked they tend to get a bit tough to chew. the walnuts are the best part in the finished product. definately dont omit those. i cooked them for only 8-9 minutes for a softer cooled cookie. very hearty.
