The World's Best Cookie

This recipe has been around since the 70's.  It was called the 'cornflake cookie' for a long time.  I have received this cookie in a Christmas cookie exchange (thank you, Carolyn) and I have given them also as it makes a lot.  I'm sure many would disagree this is the World's Best Cookie, but I think it is up there in the top 10 for sure.


1 cup butter, softened
1 cup vegetable oil 
1 cup white sugar 
1 cup brown sugar 
1 egg 
1 cup crushed corn flakes (or can use rice krispies)
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal (I used old-fashioned)
1 cup flaked coconut
4 cups flour, decrease to 3 1/2 cups for a chewier cookie 
1 tablespoon baking soda 
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter, sugars, vanilla and egg. Add oil. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop cookies onto baking sheet.  Bake for 10- 12 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on pan for a minute or two, then transfer to a rack to cook.
