World's Best Cookies Aka That 70s Elusive Cornflake Cookies

This wonderful recipe was in circulation when I was a kid in the 70s. Years later, a woman brought a tray of these to the office, which I instantly recognized as THOSE COOKIES FROM MY CHILDHOOD, and she refused to give me the recipe (said it was her babysitter's secret recipe)! I searched online (tried several recipes) and asked my friends and family off and on if they'd heard of it, for 10 years. I finally JUST found this online! They are SO GOOD! Bake them for your friends and family and share the recipe with the WORLD! Note, the number of cookies you get will vary - depending on how big you roll the balls. Show more
