Cooky Cookies

Recipe by  

"This is an ultra-short, yet wonderfully chewy and incredibly rich cookie! It is one of the most popular cookies I make, especially with adults (kids are usually not so fond of the nuts)."

Original recipe makes 5 dozen Change Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter and sugars until fluffy. Slowly add oil and beat until oil is well incorporated. Add egg and vanilla, beat to mix.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Add to butter mixture and stir just until mixed. Combine corn flakes, oatmeal, nuts and coconut and add to cookie mixture; mix just until combined.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to produce consistently sized cookies, but you can drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, if you don't have a scoop. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Since these are so rich, you can chill the individual balls of cookie dough and then freeze them in freezer bags. You can then take them directly from the freezer to the oven, just add a few minutes to the cooking time.

These cookies are ridiculously addicting. They are so simple, but the taste and texture of them are amazing. I left out the nuts and coconut out of personal preference, but I really don't think they're worse off without them. The texture is somewhere between a pecan sandie and a good crumbly peanut butter cookie. While they don't have a greasy appearance or mouthfeel, once you pick one up you'll be looking for a napkin to wipe your fingers on. I halved the recipe and made the cookies small and got 55. I've already eaten an embarrassing amount of them, so I don't think I'll make them again until I have somewhere to take them so someone else can eat them too. Thanks!

I don't know where I went wrong, but no one in my family liked these. They sat for a few days!

These cookies tasted very good. They were addicting, you couldnt just eat one. There are a few small things i would change about the recipe. Instead of adding 1 cup of vegetable oil, i would only use 1/2 cup of oil and substitute the rest for water. This made my cookies less greasy and not as fattening. Also i replaced the walnuts with chocolate chips because i am not a fan of nuts. I would definitly recommend these cookies for any occasion.

The best cookie ever! Be sure to flatten them with a glass. Cool cookie for about 5 minutes before handling, they a a little fragile when they are still warm. I made these for a baby shower and added a cup of buttersotch morsels and everyone said they were the best cookie they ever tasted (cut back a little on the sugar if you do this.

Excellent cookie! I was unsure about using so much oil, but it turned out great. I didn't have unsweetened coconut, so I used sweetened and it was fine. I also added 1/2 c of semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 c of butterscotch chips. Yummy!

This is the cookie my mom used to call "Ranger Cookies" (also sometimes called Cowboy Cookies) -- she got the recipe from the LA Unified School District. This dough makes a great chocolate chip cookie -- just add 3 or 4 cups chips to this recipe.

This recipe is awesome! I'm always looking for something other than the usual chocolate chip or oatmeal drop cookie. This is it. Try it-fast and easy.

I was sooo worried that they were going to come out very greasy because of the amount of oil ad butter in them. Surprisingly, my very critical family all loved them! They were really good, light and delish. Not too sweet.
