Grandma's Coconut Corn Flake Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
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!

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 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.

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.
