Corn Flake Cookies

on August 28, 2013

I guess we got our summer back! It has been a HOT week in Minnesota! The heat is not great for baking, so we’re going to do another no-bake cookie. Corn Flake Cookies is the name I gave them since the title of the recipe on the card is Cookies.


“Enuf” said.

Corn Flake Cookies

Again, I looked at these ingredients and there seemed to be a lot of syrup and not a lot of cornflakes.

It worked well.

Why do I keep doubting Grandma’s recipes?

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Corn Flake Cookies

1 cup sugar

1 cup corn syrup

1/4 cup butter

1 cup peanut butter

Mix in saucepan and melt.

Pour over top of 6 cups of corn flakes.

Mix well.

Drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper lined baking sheets.

Let sit until firm. They do firm up faster in the refrigerator.

That’s it.


The mixture doesn’t hold together too well until it cools a bit.


I did let them sit a few minutes and then piled the mixture up a bit more in the cookie shape.


Another very addictive and somewhat different kind of cookie.
