I liked this cookie. It's not the fancy really involved cookie recipe...but that's what is great about it. Basic ingredients and quick with simple on-hand items. I didn't have shortening(used margarine) or nuts(omitted)and it worked great. I reduced the white sugar to 1/4 cup because I only had frosted corn flakes. Wonderful change to a basic oatmeal cookie yet remaining simple. Multiple grains (corn oats and wheat). I think I will also use this recipe as a base for different add-ins different cereals etc. I live in the high country so I did add a little a few extra Tbs. of flour. Thanks Herb:) Read More

This is a very simple recipe. My 19month old helped to make them and loved eating them. I did use butter instead of shortning. Other than that we stuck to the recipe and they turned out awesome. Read More

These were really good. Really good flavor and texture. I didn't use shortening because I don't like to use it so I used a combo of butter and light butter (all I had). They got a tad puffy but were still really chewy and yummy. Read More

Good hearty cookie! I used Honey Bunches of Oats w/ cinnamon clusters for the cereal and they turned out great. I only got about 1.5 dozen from recipe (apparently I make HUGE cookies). Thanks for a good different recipe! Read More
