Cin'sVersion "Cornflake Chocolate Drizzle Cookies"

Straws Kitchen

By

I remember the "Peanut Butter Corn Flake Cookies" (w/o Chocolate) being served when I was in school...by the "Cafeteria Ladies".

Then I became a cafeteria lady (when my own children were in elementary school), we also made and served them then.

The children at school always looked forward to the days we were serving them...all children, young and old, seemed to enjoy them.

P.S. I know there are several cornflake cookie recipes posted on JAP already, but this is my version.
I am a "diabetic" and I like sweets too.

P.S.S. the photos posted on here are all my own.
