Robin, this is a great recipe & it does take a dishpan to mix up. I have an original recipe named the same, only it takes rice krispies instead of corn flakes and no coconut. Everyone, this is a good cookie recipe especially for big crowds or large number of children to do cookies for.

Every year, myself and about 6 or 7 friends get together the first week-end in December and do a "Cookie Exchange". It's a lot of fun (we have a blast!) but throughout the year I'm always looking for a different cookie recipe that I can use for it. This sounds great. And I won't have to be mixing several batches. Of course, in order to be sure that's what I want to make, I'll have to do an "experimental" batch for my hubby and co-workers. I haven't had any complaints yet. LOL!

I've been making this recipe since I was a young girl (40+ years). Its close but not quite the same. It's more like piwacket's recipe.. but I'll try it to compare. Thanks.
