"Mom makes these and I love them so I thought I'd share them with you. They don't stay around long! They are soft and yummy and kids love them."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This recipe has also been passed down from my Great Grandmother & is a family favorite. We always called them Texas Ranger Cookies, although no one from my family has ever lived in TX. Instead of butter my family recipe calls for 1 cup shortening (either plain or butter flavor). The corn flakes (2 full cups) need to be coarsely crushed (put in plastic bag & roll a can, bottle or rolling pin over the bag). We typically add a full cup of coconut & 1 cup raisins as well. The recipe doubles easily when making for the holidays & giving to a lot of friends. These cookies don't have to be soft if you prefer a crisper cookie; we've done both to satisfy different palates in the family.
I found that these had way too much baking soda, it is almost all I can taste :( I can tell that with the soda reduced though they will be amazing so I will be trying it again but maybe with only 1 tsp of soda
These are wonderfully fabulous! Soft, but interestingly crispy texture. I read the other reviews & couldn't help but giggle. There is NO WAY these could have gotten a bad review - not to be offensive, but they do not taste like baking soda & are not dry at all. I respectfully feel that it's a possibility there was a mismeasurement & some over-cooking going on. Tasty tasty tasty! I will make these again & again. The add in of the chocolate chips was genious & I will definitely try the Craisins add-in next. These little honies are magicians with a good disappearing act around my house! P.S. That's my photo featured on this recipe ;)
These were just mediocre. I found them to be very dry. Nothing special at all. Will not make again.
quick to make, and very tasty. To make clean-up easier, I simply mixed the first ingredients, then added the dry in the same bowl. It was a one bowl cookie. Added raisins since they were on hand. Kids loved them.
I used all of the same ingredients and added Craisins (we like the tartness of them). They were fabulous. I didn't have regular corn flakes but the sugar frosted flakes worked just great as well. Quick and easy to make and quick to bake and cool for a last minute cookie if need be.
I have made these cookies for years, and they are a family favorite. One thing I do to make them extra good, is to make a glaze of confectioner's sugar and fresh orange juice and frost each cookie. It adds a wonderful flavor, and a little moistness to the cookies. Try it!
Not as good as my Betty Crocker recipe.
