corn flake cereal
sweetened flaked coconut
these are the same cookies my mom always made every Christmas when I was growing up except she added a half of a marachino cherry on each one before baking;they are great but make them at the last minute or store air tight
Ok. Added the maraschino cherry another reviewer suggested. The cookies were very sticky on the bottom even after cooling. I found that a silicone mat worked better than parchment paper.
I had some coconut AND a partial box of frosted flakes I had to use up, so I decided these would be a great way to do so. Because of the "frosted" aspect of the cornflakes, I cut the sugar down to 2/3 of a cup, which helped with the overall sweetness. I threw in about 1/4 cup of cocoa powder (my family members are all chocolate addicts) and it turned out well! I wasn't overly fond of these (I couldn't wrap my taste buds around the corn taste), but they're a great treat for the kids! I made them with sliced almonds, too, which was a nice variation with the chocolate flavor.
I accidentally added red dye when adding vanilla and made RED cookies! OK ALL cooks make mistakes and I got through this one and these were very fragile with corn chip taste so I would add raisins or chocolate chips, or cinnamon or more vanilla next time . . . and not color them up!
I made creme brule earlier in the week, so I had egg whites to use up. This recipe caught my eye, because of the corn flakes and coconut addition to a standard meringue cookie...That said, by dropping by rounded tablespoons, I only ended up with 30/cookies versus the 60 the recipe suggests. I cooked them for 2/hours at 212 degrees on non-stick foil. They were crunchy and delicious!
