Here is a fun new cookie for you. They are named “good to the last one cookies” and you will find out why. The buttery flavor comes out, but there are oats and cornflakes in them. I also added some cinnamon chips, giving them just the right taste. It is fun to have a change from the traditional cookies. Your family or guests will be surprised to find out that they have corn flakes in them, adding a nice little crunch. These cookies are more of the texture of a short bread cookie. And they don’t dry out, making them good to the last one. However they usually don’t last very long.
I usually love to bake on cloudy days and we have been having a lot of them. The reason I bake is so that I can warm up. It is funny how the house can be the same temperature as when the sun is shining, but it just feels colder. So if I bake, it warms up the house just a little bit more. Plus, there is nothing like a warm cookie to warm you up. These are a lot of fun, and maybe you can make a game out of guessing who can guess what is in the cookies.
I am pretty sure that you can eat these for breakfast since they have two different kinds of cereal. Add a glass of milk, and you are set. Ask your kids if they agree with me. Nothing better than oatmeal and cornflakes for breakfast. It is always fun to see the different responses that you get out of people when you try something new. Let me know what your testers say. Enjoy and have a wonderful day.
