Corn Flake Cookies

In the middle of a cookie baking frenzy, I remind myself that it would be prudent to invest in some Silpats. Not only am I wasting money on roll after roll of parchment paper, but very soon, my guilt over deforestation...oh, never mind. Just bake some of these cookies, which were a childhood favorite of mine.

  4. corn flakes? Interesting ingredient in cookies! Have you ever left the nuts out? I think I'll try this one out with my corn flakes no ones eating.

    1. While I haven't left out the nuts, I would imagine the cookies would be good without them.
