Original recipe yields 12 dozen



  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Cream white sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla together in a large bowl or dishpan. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Stir the flour mixture into the creamed sugar; mix until well combined.
  3. Stir corn flakes, oats, coconut, pecans, dates and raisins into the dough. You will most likely need to use your hands to mix everything thoroughly. Shape the dough into 1 1/2 to 2 inch balls and press them down lightly onto a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake in a preheated 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) oven for 10 to 14 minutes or until golden.

Oh, my gosh, I think I died and went to heaven!absolutely scrumptious! I didn't have dates or raisins on hand so substituted 2c. rainbow mini chips and walnuts for the pecans but this is now my all time favorite the fact it uses oil instead of butter or marg., makes it really easy to cream.



These are the best cookies, I have ever tasted. I love it because it yields so much. It makes it so nice to be able to freeze the dough and bake whenever you run out of cookies. The only problem is the cookies don't last long around my house. They are so easy to make.



I don't think I've made cookies with oil before and I'm impressed with the ease of preparation and lightness of the cookie. The flavor was a tiny bit bland; however I didn't use the dates or raisins, and maybe the taste would have been improved by those additions. I will try it again with part whole wheat flour or more brown, less white sugar or maybe a touch of spice. I do love the appearance and the crispy outside, chewy center. I baked at 350 for about 10 minutes. Thank you Meredith.
