These cookies have crunchiness from lots of different ingredients - a wonderful taste combination.


1 cup Butter; softened
1 cup Light brown sugar
1 cup Granulated sugar
2 Eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Baking soda
2 cups Flour
1 cup Coconut; (optional)
1 cup Pecans; chopped
2 cups Rolled oats
2 cups Corn flakes

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in the flour, salt, and soda. Hand mix in the oats, pecans, coconut, and cornflakes - leave the cornflakes until last so you don't completely shred them.

Drop by half tablespoon on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes.

Note: the original recipe called for shortening instead of butter, but I like the taste of butter better. I also used quick-cooking oats instead of regular rolled oats.

This recipe came from my Brenham friend Cathy Rybarski, whose mom always brought these cookies to Girl Scout camp. Yummy.
