Make sure you use 2c. cereal crushed, not 2c. of crushed cereal! I lowered the oven temp. to 325 deg. and that was perfect. Next time I will cut back on the amount of sugar.

These were so easy to make and so good! The only change I made was to bake for only 9 minutes. What a great way to use the last of the corn flakes in the box! Thanks, Kathie!

This was a wonderful cookie , I did adjust some if it. I added a half cup more of corn flakes. Depending on how sweet you like your cookies, I would adjust sugar to 1/2. Will keep making thanks ...

My mother made these when I was a child and they are indeed the original and delicious.

***** <---- Extra Stars for this VERY EASY and YUMMY recipe. Thanks Kathie for submitting for others to enjoy.

Everytime I have made these, they are a hit with people at work, and my family. The last time I made was at Christmas 2008 and my mom just loves these cookies.

This is an excellent recipe. Very easy and it turned out great. We liked these cookies so much we made them several days in a row. Also, I used Special K cereal instead of cornflakes and ad...

I used Corn Chex since we are a gluten free family. I also used 3 egg whites instead of two. They were super yummy!

These were really good, I like that they didn't spread out much while cooking. I also liked the light texture to these for something different.
