I got this recipe as a young girl when I spent the summer with my great grandma. Now I make them for my family and they all love them. "Granny" lives on if only through my recipe box.

I wanted to try to make a cookie using the dates I had and I happened to have frosted flakes too. I thought the cookies were great. I'm not a big fan of dates either but the cereal really gave the cookie a sweet crunchy texture and the cookies were chewy on the inside just the way I like it. Read More

Teaspoon sized dough rounds makes alot more than two dozens. I made teaspoon and tablespoon size rounds and both were good. The rounds are indeed quite crunchy. I probably would cut my dates in smaller pieces next time. I used vanilla and almond Special K cereal. Good but I prefer chewy cookies. Read More
