I've given this recipe to more people than any other recipe I have. These cookies are so easy to make. Cornflakes and pecans give them their delightful crunch.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 1, 2013

These cookies are terrible, they come out thin and baked the way the recipe says, burns them to pieces. If not cooked well they fall apart. Do not go by the pictures because they don't look like that at all. They are the worse cookie I have ever made, and I make plenty of cookies. Dozens every month and always look for new ones to try. This was the worst!!!!!!!! Do you have to have four cups of corn flakes to start and the crush them or do you crush them first to make four cups. This was not in the recipe I got via my Taste of Home Cook Book. I am not depending on Taste of Home any more for cookie recipes.
