I got these through one of those Internet recipe chain letter thingies, and you know what? These are really good!
- 1 cup butter, melted and cooled
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup crushed corn flakes
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
Options (mix and match as you like)
- 3⁄4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup toffee pieces
- 3⁄4 cup chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, corn flakes, sugars, raisins and coconut.
- Add eggs, vanilla and melted butter.
- Mix till well blended.
- Mix in chocolate chips.
- In a separate bowl, mix flour salt, baking powder and baking soda.
- Add flour mixture and stir until it is all incorporated into the dough.
- Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until nicely browned.
- Cool on a wire rack.
I, too, got this off internet 3 years ago and it is my alltime favorite to take to neighbors, ailing church members, etc. (You should 1st check for food allergies, likes/dislikes first, cauz these cookies have about EVERYTHING in them!) Everyone goes GAGA over them! I had always made them using rounded teaspoons (I misread the recipe for 2 years), which essentially doubles the recipe but makes the cooking time critical. I bake (the smaller cookies) for 10-11 minutes and they turn out chewy. Leave them in about 1 min longer and they are crispy. Any longer than that, they are TOO crispy -- not good at all.
Someone finally posted this recipe. I've been making these for a while. We also use Rice Krispies, reeses pieces and coconut. Sometimes I throw in macadameia nuts (when I can afford them)and white choco chps
This has been a favorite in my household for 20 years. We prefer ricekrispies for cereal and I add 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar Ozarkannie
