Pretty good recipe very tasty cookies but 375 for 12-15 minutes is too hot and too long. 350 for 10-12 minutes Read More

These cookies were not good at all. I am so sad that I wasted my chocolate chips on this recipe. I think 375 was way too hot- after only 8 min. they were dark brown. I really don't even think they have a very good flavor. Read More

This recipe was great! They were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. My family loves them! I added coconut substituted cinnamon chips and omitted the nuts. I will make them again soon! Read More

These cookies were so good! They had a great taste and a good texture. My husband is pretty picky with cookie texture and this cookie had a nice combo of chewy and crispy. Thanks! Read More

Excellent! Exactly what I was looking for: crunchy yet chewy. Love the chocolate chips. I increased the cornflakes to 2 cups and decreased bake time to 9 minutes. The family loves these cookies! Read More

I've never been very good at making cookies but these turned out fine. I was even happier that everyone liked them and they all got eaten. Read More

It's good. 1/2'd the recipe. I didn't use canola oil only margarine. Added a scoop of PB but think it's better without. A handful of coconut and used Honey Almond Cluster cereal (and was told that I skimped on the choc. chips)... 11 minutes. DO NOT Over-Bake!!! Crispy outside soft inside. It's a great "surprise" cookie. Read More

I knew when the batter tasted good that the cookies would be great. The crunch of the corn flakes really adds to the cookie. Read More
