"A volunteer at a Red Cross Blood Drive gave my sister this recipe years ago. This recipe will literally make a dishpan full of cookies. You will probably want to halve this recipe."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups
quick cooking oats
This is a really easy cookie to make. My recommendation is to crush the cornflakes before adding into the mix. I did a 2-cookie test and was able to correct this by crushing the dough before making additional cookies.
I adjusted the recipe to make "30" and used a medium scoop to make very uniform cookies. I got about 3 dozen cookies from the recipe adjustment.
I found that 10 minutes in my 350* gas oven was perfect for a chewy, soft cookie. I used both a baking stone and lined baking sheet. I found both to be effective for a good final product.
I took some cookies over for my mom to test. She said that it tasted like a "professional" cookie. I liked that.
I will make this cookie again and add more oats (1 cup) and more shredded coconut (3/4 cup). (This is for a 30 cookie batch.)
This is what I call a very reliable cookie. It very sweet but in a plain Jane kind of way. Excellent for after school snacks or picnics. If you like sweet and extra crunchy this cookie should hit the spot.
These are amazing. I was really skeptical, but I had all the ingredients, so I made a small batch. I need to make more. These are the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy. I used my large cookie scoop which holds a rounded tablespoon. I made some with and some without coconut (DH doesn't like the stuff). Both were delicious. Thanks for a tasty recipe that I will definitely make again!
love it (so chewy) even without any nuts and raisins. this one is super easy to make , i done it within 30mins.!!
I loved them!! I used more coconut just because I love it. Also special K instead of cornflakes just because that's all I had, may be healthier too :)
This was a good recipe. I used Special K instead of corn flakes, and rasins instead of pecans and coconut and they still turned out great. They almost had a flavor reminiscent of funnel cakes. I scaled the recipe down to 15 and they turned out great.
I did halve the recipe and once I made them, realized I was out of oatmeal, so I skipped it and they were still really good! Can't wait to make them with the oatmeal! :)
