A volunteer at a Red Cross Blood Drive gave my sister this recipe years ago. This recipe will literally make a dishpan full of cookies. You will probably want to halve this recipe.

This is a really easy cookie to make. My recommendation is to crush the cornflakes before adding into the mix. I did a 2-cookie test and was able to correct this by crushing the dough before making additional cookies. I adjusted the recipe to make "30" and used a medium scoop to make very uniform cookies. I got about 3 dozen cookies from the recipe adjustment. I found that 10 minutes in my 350 gas oven was perfect for a chewy soft cookie. I used both a baking stone and lined baking sheet. I found both to be effective for a good final product. I took some cookies over for my mom to test. She said that it tasted like a "professional" cookie. I liked that. I will make this cookie again and add more oats (1 cup) and more shredded coconut (3/4 cup). (This is for a 30 cookie batch.) Read More

This is more like a round granola bar than a cookie. Kind of turned me off cookies for the rest of my life. Tasted like sweet gummy vegetable oil. I have never heard of 2 cups of veg oil being used to make cookies and now I know why. Stick with Dishpan Cookies II recipe and use butter than margarine if you don't want a lot of artficial ingredients in your batch. Sometimes a cookie just needs to be a treat not gummy cardboard.

These are amazing. I was really skeptical but I had all the ingredients so I made a small batch. I need to make more. These are the perfect combination of crunchy and chewy. I used my large cookie scoop which holds a rounded tablespoon. I made some with and some without coconut (DH doesn't like the stuff). Both were delicious. Thanks for a tasty recipe that I will definitely make again! Read More

This was a good recipe. I used Special K instead of corn flakes and rasins instead of pecans and coconut and they still turned out great. They almost had a flavor reminiscent of funnel cakes. I scaled the recipe down to 15 and they turned out great. Read More

I was excited to find this recipe for cookies without butter or shortening. I have made it twice now. First time I halved the recipe and used Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. Second time I quarted to recipe and used Rice Krispies cereal. Both turned out really well. Also added a little cinnamon both times. Everyone loved them. Read More

Love this cookie. My family usually goes nuts for Toll House cookies more than any other (they are "the best cookie" according to them) -- but they love this one just as much (and that's saying something) My husband loves that they have coconut and sometimes wants me to add raisins as well which they do not necessarily need but they are also very good with them I have to say. I make the full amount (which is a LOT of cookies) and fill my jar then roll rest of dough into wax paper and put rolls in a freezer zip bag to take out and slice and bake as needed. Wonderful cookie! Read More
