Make sure you use 2c. cereal crushed, not 2c. of crushed cereal! I lowered the oven temp. to 325 deg. and that was perfect. Next time I will cut back on the amount of sugar.

When I made the recipe, the batter did not stick together. It tells you to bake for 18 min. but I only put 10 and the macaroons were burnt. There is way to much sugar in the recipe. There more like cookies than macaroons. Would not recomend at all.

These were so easy to make and so good! The only change I made was to bake for only 9 minutes. What a great way to use the last of the corn flakes in the box! Thanks, Kathie!

This was a wonderful cookie , I did adjust some if it. I added a half cup more of corn flakes. Depending on how sweet you like your cookies, I would adjust sugar to 1/2. Will keep making thanks so much for sharing.

Everytime I have made these, they are a hit with people at work, and my family. The last time I made was at Christmas 2008 and my mom just loves these cookies.

This is an excellent recipe. Very easy and it turned out great. We liked these cookies so much we made them several days in a row. Also, I used Special K cereal instead of cornflakes and added about a teaspoon of coconut extract when I added the sugar. Will certainly make these again -- thank you for posting this recipe!!
