Tina, My cousin in AR. gave me this recipe. I don't know where she got it. But she makes the best cookies every time I visit her. These were great. I have made them a couple of times to give at Christmas. I used whatever cereal I have on hand. Good luck with your cookie business.Try adding 1/3 cup applesauce to a batch too. GG Vi.
