Janet Stout from Baltimore was looking for a recipe she had lost for cookies made with cornflake cereal. As she said, cookie-making time is here, and she wanted to make some of the delicious cookies again. Irene Gozdziewski, also from Baltimore, who says she is 86 years old and "still likes to try out new food and recipes, thank God," emailed me a recipe she had for "cornflake crunchies." She said the recipe came from a generic box of the cereal. I whipped up a batch of the cookies in no time. They were very tasty and crispy with a nice hint of orange flavor. I'm sure they would be a welcome addition to any holiday cookie party.
