It’s really hard to say which I love best, classic chocolate chip cookies, or these loaded-with-goodness cowboy cookies. The secret ingredient? The crushed Cornflake crumbs. I’ve tried several cowboy cookie recipes, and it’s the Cornflake crumbs that set these apart. If you have regular oats handy, those will work fine in place of the quick version. What are you waiting for? Go bake up a batch ASAP!
