I LOVE making and eating cookies and these were suprisingly good. Although I did use butter instead of margarine (that could be why people are getting flat cookies-I don't like using margarine-plus why skimp when it's a cookie) and I ALWAYS need a squirt or two of vanilla in any of my cookies. These had a nice and different crunch with the cornflake ingredient and they were very yummy! Will def make again. I also made half the recipe and that was plenty of cookies. Read More

i was disappointed in the chewiness everyone mentioned. i thought these came out dry. the chewiness must just be from the cereals and coconut vs the moisture retention. i cut the recipe in half and it filled my mixing bowl so if you do the full recipe you will need a huge bowl and strength to mix all the ingredients. you can't really use a power mixer when adding the final ingredients: cereals chips and coconut.

These were REALLY good! I usually won't rate a recipe that I've changed but the only thing I did different with these cookies was that I used real butter instead of margarine and I used 2 cups of chocolate chips instead of 3. My kids and hubby LOVED these cookies. I also refrigerated the dough for 2 hours and that helped them from being so flat. I loved that they were so chewy. Read More

The cookies are great...crispy and chewy. But the recipe is very large. You will need a very powerful mixer too. Read More

Really yummy warm! I used Splenda in place of the sugars & cut the recipe in half. Splenda in cookies doesn't flatten so I had to flatten them before baking. Read More

WOW! Now this is an awesome cookie! I was looking for a recipe for Cowboy cookies and this one had the same ingredients so I used it. I added raisins and walnuts and they were so good. These cookies did not flatten when cool. Just the right texture a little crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. I had to bake them longer about 15 minutes was perfect but I made them pretty big. The batch was so big I couldn't fit it all in the mixer (Kitchen Aid) so I mixed the rest of the ingredients with my hands. I am going to try different variations. Like butterscotch chips and walnuts no raisins. I am sure these will be in my cookie jar for years to come! Thank you. Read More

I can cook but a baker I am not..UNTIL TODAY!!! This recipe is wonderful. The corn flakes scared me a little but in the end I like it. I followed the recipe to the letter and they are perfect. These are fantastic cookies. I did need to bake them about 14 minutes. Read More

This is officialy our family's favorite cookie. I get bored with the typical chocolate chip cookies and these are a great change. I always make them with butter instead of margarine. They are also very good replacing the chocolate chips for dried cranberries. They make lots so do small batches or use a strong mixer. Read More
