A volunteer at a Red Cross Blood Drive gave my sister this recipe years ago. This recipe will literally make a dishpan full of cookies. You will probably want to halve this recipe.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 2 cups white sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 cups vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
- 4 cups cornflakes cereal
- 1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 1 cup flaked coconut (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a LARGE bowl, cream brown sugar, sugar, vanilla, oil and eggs together. Add flour, soda, salt and oats. Mix well. Stir in corn flakes, coconut and pecans.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes.
Makes 10 dozen (2 inch) cookies. Caution: Halve this recipe if you don't want a ton of cookies.
