These were not so good. I substituted Frosted Flakes for the corn flakes, which I assumed would be OK. My cookies came out very very crumbly (probably didn't roll them into tight enough balls)and they had little flavor.

I have made this with chopped prunes, raisins, and walnuts in place of dates and have always turned out great...love the chewy-ness to this cookie THANKS

I thought these had an interesting texture. I made them for my husband to take to work and he came home with no cookies and many requests for the recipe.
