Of the recipes I've collected through the years, this one's most requested by family and friends. Packed with raisins, cornflakes and dried fruit, these hearty cookies are both delicious and nutritious.
- 3/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 1/4 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2-1/2 cups cornflakes
- 1 cup chopped mixed dried fruit
- 3/4 cup raisins
- In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in molasses and honey. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in cornflakes, dried fruit and raisins.
