1 cup butter (2 sticks, melted)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 beaten eggs
2 1/2 cups flour, not sifted
2 cups crushed cornflakes (just crushed by hand- no need to process)
1 to 2 cups chocolate chips
Melt butter; add the sugars and stir. Add soda, salt, vanilla and beaten eggs. Mix well, then add flour and mix. Add cornflakes and chocolate chips; mix thoroughly.
Form dough into walnut-sized balls with fingers and placed on greased cookie sheet. Press down slightly with a floured or greased spatula.
Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. The rack is important- it makes them crisp.
Yields 6-8 dozen, depending on size.
This recipe was in a book I read recently- a mystery by Joanne Fluke. Fun books, and the recipes look great.
