Farm cookies!

This recipe reminds me of Ranger Cookies. In my lovely home state of Wisconsin, we don't have rangers, but we have lots of farms! We also have rabbits that look like cows, but that's another post entirely.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute
a teaspoon vanilla
2 cups uncooked quick oats
2 cups cornflakes
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 375 dgees F. In small bowl, combine flour, baking poowder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well; set aside. In large bowl, beat butter for 30 seconds. Add sugars; beat until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture; beat until well combined. Stir in oats, cornflakes, and nuts (dough will be stiff). Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls on ungreased cookie sheets; flatten slightly with a fork or the bottom of a glass. Bake at 375 degrees F for 8 - 10 minutes, or until done. Makes about 4 dozen.

I didn't have cornflakes, so I used what I had in the cupboard: Smart Start cereal. It worked very well. I baked these on a cold, cold day when we were all housebound, and they hit the spot with a cup of hot cocoa - or coffee, of course.

Sounds good. I think I'd add chocolate chips :-)

Yeah for you! Yes, I liked the bit about 'we didn't have any cornflakes and so we used.....' that's always happening around here and quite often the results are better than I would have guessed.

Those sounds awesome and I do happen to have a box of Corn Flakes that I bought for another recipe and tried to eat as cereal. But really, who does that? Becuase they taste like cardboard on their own. And since you can't buy a small box of Corn Flakes, I've been looking for something to use them in. These cookies might just do the trick!! Thanks for sharing.
