Mom's Garbage Cookies
November 28, 2005

The taste of these cookies is so familiar.. I'm not sure why, but I'm thinking of junior high cooking class. :) I didn't have dates, and although I thought of substituting Craisins, I decided to just omit that ingredient. I did a half-batch, and used margarine. My mixer could handle blending all the ingredients, although the corn flakes got well-crushed (which was fine, no lumpy hard bits to bite through!). Only problem was that they really flattened out.. Tasted great (both the dough and the cookies!), and the flatness didn't bug me. In the future, I'll probably use ½ baking soda and ½ baking powder (I do that change in most cookie recipes for softer, thicker cookies), and I might try these as drop cookies next time. I WILL make these again! Thanks, lrawlins!
