Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cornflake Cookies

I can't believe it's been four weeks since I've done a Weekend Cooking posting! I've made these cookies twice in that time, and to quote Margaret's text:
Best cookies in the world!! Love love love them!
I am quite sure you will agree. The crunchiness is a delightful surprise when you first bite into a cookie. These are a bit different from the Cornflake Cookies I posted a while ago, and I think they are even better.

Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cornflake Cookies

1 cup soft butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt

2 cups crushed cornflakes (I used a potato masher)
maybe 1/2 cup chocolate chips, or more if you want

Beat together the first four ingredients.
Mix together and add the three dry ingredients.

Stir in the cornflakes and chocolate chips.

Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated 350┬║ F. oven for about 10 minutes

You will probably use good old Kellogg's Corn Flakes,

but I chose Erewhon's Corn Flakes.

  1. Okay, you have me very curious about these...I want to make them to see what the texture is like :)

  2. They sound very good! I will try them. I have some cinnamon corn flakes in the cupboard wonder if that would ruin them or 'enhance' them?

  3. Know what else would be good in those cookies?


  4. Just half a cup of chocolate chips?? I think my husband would protest. I'll give these a try with a handful or two more. :)

  5. When I've had my gall-bladder removed I can try these!

  6. I've never heard of making cookies with corn flakes. I'll have to give them a try!
    Here's My Weekend Cooking

  7. This sounds easy (and quick!) enough for me to do, with no exotic ingredients - who knows, I may even try those one day :-)

  8. Gluten free cornflakes! Why can't Kellogg's cornflakes be gluten free? They now have gluten free Rice Krispies, but they cost a lot more.
    I think I will make this, but will use the gluten free Corn Chex. Thanks so much for this recipe.
    Do you remember your Butter Cake recipe? I make it gluten free and I Love, Love, Love it!
    Why do you like these cornflakes? Do they just taste better?

  9. I have never used cornflakes in a cookie recipe -- at least not that I remember. These sound really good. And the "love, love, love them" is a pretty good endorsement. LOL.

    We use a different brand of cornflakes. I think Barbara's.

  10. Ohhh. . .those look good! I know what my daughters and I will be doing tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for posting!

  11. There's just something about cornflakes! We've made the traditional marshmallow-y green wreaths off and on over the years, but never chocolate chip cookies... must give these a try. Thanks, Nan.

  12. I never thought of adding cereal to chocolate chip cookies. What a great idea!

  13. I think you might just have supplied me with something fun to do with my grandson this week. Thank you, Nan!

  14. Interesting, I never heard of cornflake cookies. My mom use to love cornflakes and warm milk.

    Hope you are all ready for the holidays!

  15. I actually have cornflakes in the pantry. I never eat it the regular way, so this might be a good way for me to use them! Thanks!

  16. I love chocolate chip cookies, but never heard of using cornflakes. I will give it a try next time I make cookies. They look really good.

  17. Great, now I know what to do with the half box of cornflakes sitting in the cupboard since the grandchildren went back home!

  18. The Book Girl, if you can imagine the crunch of nuts with a sweeter taste. :<)

    Peggy, go for it!

    Class factotum, :<)

    Les, you can't go wrong with more!

    Cait, a nice post-op treat. :<)

    Vicki, they are quite excellent!

    Librarian, you could bring some to your folks and see what they think.

    Kay, I buy Erewhon because there are just two ingredients: Organic, non-GMO cornmeal and sea salt.

    Beth, you'd remember if you'd ever had them, I am quite sure! Barbara's is a good company, too. I buy the shredded wheat.

    Phaedosia, this is definitely a fun cookie for kids (and adults!).

    JoAnn, and I've not heard of those wreaths. :<)

    Memory, I think I found the recipe online years ago. Combined with the choc. chips, it is a great taste.

    Cath, delightful idea!

    Mary, they are!!

    Diane, I think my father ate cornflakes and grapefruit every morning of his life.

    Uniflame, I can't praise them enough!

    Alex, and they taste even better!

    Little Nell, yes!

  19. I forgot about these cookies! My mom used to make something similar years ago and they were so good. I will have to try your recipe.

  20. Oh my goodness!! I will have to make these over the holiday break!!

  21. Mmm...these sound so good! I love the crunch of the corn flakes. :D

  22. Lisa, Staci, and Heather, thanks. These are great, great cookies!

  23. I forgot to leave a comment yesterday even though I immediately clipped your post to my evernote cooking notebook. The cookies look super yummy, I will definitely give them a try.

  24. I am quite sure you will love them, Rikki!!

  25. Yum, these could so easily be gluten free.~~Dee

  26. Dee, the Erewhon brand is def. gluten free.

  27. I have never heard os such a cookie but I bet I could eat at least a dozen of them. :) Thanks for the recipe.
