    I liked this cookie. It's not the fancy, really involved cookie recipe...but that's what is great about it. Basic ingredients and quick with simple on-hand items. I didn't have shortening(used margarine) or nuts(omitted)and it worked great. I reduced the white sugar to 1/4 cup because I only had frosted corn flakes. Wonderful change to a basic oatmeal cookie, yet remaining simple. Multiple grains (corn, oats and wheat). I think I will also use this recipe as a base for different add-ins, different cereals,etc. I live in the high country, so I did add a little a few extra Tbs. of flour.

    This is a very simple recipe. My 19month old helped to make them and loved eating them. I did use butter instead of shortning. Other than that we stuck to the recipe and they turned out awesome.  -  20 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    these were a huge hit! i used butter flavored shortening and omitted the nuts, and it worked out fine. great flavor and texture, crispy on the edges and chewier in the middle. thanks for a great recipe!  -  11 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
