I wanted to make cookies but didn't have any eggs, which it seems most cookies call for. I did a search on tasteofhome.com and found these. The recipe was simple to put together and they turned out great! I always use margarine, not butter. Also, if the recipe calls for more than 1 cup of butter, I use half margarine and half shortening. I didn't have pecans so I substituted slivered almonds. The crunch in these cookies makes them very satisfying to eat.

These are my new and forever favorite cookies ever! I added an egg and vanilla and cut the recipe in half. Do this and I guarantee you will love them!

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.
