I promise to bake gifts every year and never quite do everything I set out to. I never baked with corn flakes, but the idea of crunch and coconut sounds perfect to me! Have a great sunday Renee!

These look interesting. I might sub something else for the coconut, but that’s my quirk ;-)

Reply

Yea Donna, I know you are not a fan of coconut. I am sure something else could be substituted quite nicely.

Gorgeous cookies, Renee! This week’s Sunday Supper is seriously making me giddy with excitement – I love reading about and staring at everyone’s delicious cookies. This is the second recipe I’ve seen featuring cereal and I’m very intrigued. I’ve never baked with it before and now I seriously have a hankering to do so. Thanks for the inspiration!
