This makes a large batch of cookies, thus the name. It came from a dear, long time friend & Pen Pal from Nebraska many years ago. They can be frozen and thawed later. And it is a great way to use up left over cereals.

How to Make Dishpan Cookies


  1. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients (I use the largest Tupperware Bowl). Use hands if necessary to mix ingredients well. I have used latex surgical gloves to keep the ingredients from sticking to my hands.
  2. Measure about an eighth of a cup or less of cookie dough into hand to form a little ball. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
  3. If you use a tablespoon measure to scoop from bowl you should get about 75 to 100 cookies. I freeze some in an air tight container for later. Almost any flake cereal can be used so it is a great way to use up dabs of left over cereal and also the nuts of your choice.
