This weekend we were making our family favorite cookies. I posted this recipe a year ago (picture on the right) and Tyler and I pulled up the recipe online again. This time this recipe proved great for little ones to help as there are lots of ingredients to pour. Tyler loved helping out for the first time and learning how to lick the bowl!
This recipe was definitely one of those I remember from childhood. The batch of cookies didn’t make it 24hrs. The older berries, who normally don’t even really eat baked good, asked for more throughout the day and we polished them off by bedtime. Since I’m already getting requests for those cookies again and hubby is saying, “those are the best cookies you have ever made,” I thought they were a share-worthy recipe. They come from a Pillsbury cookbook and while the ingredients will have you doubting, the interesting texture (crunchy meet chewy) will have you grabbing for more!
Lunchbox Crunch Cookies
1/2 c. sug
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. margarine or butter, softened
1/2 t. vanilla
1 c. flour
1 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. shredded coconut
1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1 c. cornflakes
1/2 c nuts (I left these out in my recipe)
Heat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, beat sugars and butter till light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg. Stir in flour, oats, coconut, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Stir in cornflakes and nuts.
Shape into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 8 to 12 minutes. Remove immediately from cookie sheets and enjoy!
I can’t wait for you to try these amazing cookies! They remind me of my childhood and I hope they will bring your family just as much happiness as they did mine. These are the cookies that don’t make it a night in our house!
I’d love to hear how you rated them!
