Recipe from Los Angeles Unified School District. Served in school cafeterias. After making these the first time, I think some dried cranberries would be good in them.

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350F (for larger cookies) or 375F (for smaller cookies)
  2. Cream butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Stir in vanilla extract.

  5. Add oats, cornflakes, coconut, chocolate chips and nuts and stir until blended.
