So good cookies


I made these for the first time on Christmas eve when my mother in law brought the recipe. They are very good and a full batch really made about 40-50 cookies. I have modified it to a half batch.

The two important parts of this recipe are as follows: 1. You need to use a mixer 2. They get crispier the longer you cook them but also harder to chew.

I think they would be great with white chocolate chips and craisins. Next time I will try that.

Also, because it made so many, I froze most of the dough after rolling it into balls.



1 cup flour

1 stick of butter

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup old fashioned oats

1/3 cup coconut

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 cup corn flakes

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup dried cranberries


Cream the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Then add the remaining ingredients. Make into round balls 1 tablespoon in size. Place on a baking mat or parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-11 minutes. Cool before removing.

  1. I love those cookies! Next time I am doing to press them thinner so they get crispy. This recipe is one of my favorites and fun to make with you, my dear, since you are great with that industrial strength mixer!
