Loaded with oats, coconut, cornflakes, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips and milk & semisweet chocolate chips, these Cornflake Crisp Cookies have a little bit of something everyone loves.
We’re seven days into the new year so I’m thinking it’s ok to post a cookie recipe, right? By now, haven’t people already blown their new year’s goal of eating better?
I know you’ve all figured out by now that I love cookies. I basically eat, sleep and breathe cookies. I recently added to my way-too-large cookbook collection with this Best of Country Cookies Cookbook.
About 20 years ago Taste of Home conducted a national cookie recipe contest. They were completely overwhelmed when they received over 34,000 entries. Holy smokes, this country loves cookies!
They managed to narrow it down to 250 recipes and put then published this cookbook. After reading rave reviews about it on Amazon I had to buy it. It’s currently selling on Amazon for $158.78 . . .not even joking. I thankfully did not pay that insane price because I opted for a used copy that cost me about $6 after shipping. It’s in mint condition and so far I’m loving it, other than the fact that I wish it had pictures of every recipe.
Funny thing though about this cookbook is the winning recipe isn’t even published in it. . .HUH?!?! There is a picture of them, but no recipe. Not sure why, but you can google it and find it online.
These Cornflake Crisp Cookies are the first recipe I tried from the book and we absolutely loved everything about them. They’re slightly crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle, buttery, and loaded with so many yummy things. They are so, so good!
We all know I’ve eaten plenty of cookie dough in my life, and I can honestly say this dough is hands down one of the best cookie doughs I’ve ever eaten. It’s truly a miracle any cookies were actually baked. But then after I managed to stop eating the dough and bake cookies, I couldn’t stop eating the cookies! It was just a no-win situation, so it’s a really good thing I didn’t set a new year’s goal to cut back on cookies and cookie dough (lol)!
These cookies are loaded with coconut, oats, cornflakes and four different kinds of chips. They have a little bit of everything and I can guarantee you’re going to love them.
You need to make these sooner than later. Oh and if you’re a cookie dough lover like me, just consider yourself warned because like I said, the dough is killer!Print

I cut the original recipe way down because it made 9 dozen. You can easily dough or tripe this recipe if you need a bigger batch of cookies.
The first time I made these I misread the recipe and threw in white chocolate chips too, because I swear it said that. After got the dough all mixed I was checking the bake time and saw that it only called for butterscotch, milk and semisweet chocolate chips. Because these were so good with all four different chips in them, I’ve kept making them that way. So feel free to adjust the chips you use. If you don’t care for white chocolate chips, leave them out and add more of another kind. I do HIGHLY recommend the butterscotch chips! They seriously make these cookies even more amazing!!!

LOVED these cookies!!!!
Made theses tonight for a church activity on Sunday. I will freeze them later tonight so they will be fresh for Sunday. Since I trust your taste I doubled the recipe right off the bat. I made them exactly as you said using all the various types of chips. They are really good! Husband, my favorite fan had two after he had already had his dessert for the evening. Thanks for posting another great cookie recipe!
Hi Linda! Thanks for much for the comment. So glad to hear your husband loved these cookies, he definitely is a smart man! I hope you tried the dough, it’s sooooo good! I love making cookies ahead of time and freezing them. I had to make some for this past Sunday and made them on Saturday and even though they wouldn’t have only sat for one day, I still froze them (lol!). I love hearing from you, thanks again.
