Cowboy Cookies

I was looking for a new cookie recipe and turned to one of my favorite blogs - Let's Dish. Her Cowboy Cookies looked good - and they turned out to be a hit! The cornflakes add a nice, subtle crunch.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened 
1 cup packed brown sugar 
1 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla 
2 eggs
1 cup crushed corn flakes
2 1/2 cups quick oats
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded, sweetened coconut
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the milk, vanilla and eggs and beat well. Stir in cornflake crumbs and oatmeal. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and mix. Stir in the coconut, nuts, if using, and chocolate chips.  Place tablespoon-sized balls of dough on a lightly greased or lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes until lightly golden around the edges.

Yield: 4 dozen
