corn flake cereal
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.
These were just mediocre. I found them to be very dry. Nothing special at all. Will not make again.
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 ;)
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
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.
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.
