I don't use raisins in this recipe but otherwise these are a great cookie. You have to use the cornflakes though, they make the cookie!

If you like a cake type cookie, this recipe is ok. I prefer something a little more chewy.

I used chopped dates instead of raisins and it made the cookie sweeter. Nice option for holiday cookies the cherries add nice color to a tin of cookies.

I was delighted to find this recipe! My Grandma, who passed away 4 years ago, always made these. The recipe has been misplaced since she passed, and I couldn't find it anywhere. These cookies ...

It was perfect n crunchy with just cornflakes only . I reduce the sugar to 150gm n increase the crush cornflakes to 100g & skip the milk .

Best cookies ever! Awesome. Followed recipe to a T.
