Auntie Crae's Plantation Chews

I've been absent from my blog for a few months.  I think I have been baking things I have already blogged about and not too many new things.  I'm not really sure how I happened upon this recipe from this site Rock Recipes.  It is an interesting recipe with the use of corn flakes instead of flour.  Believe me, the word chew in this cookie is an understatement.  These are almost as if there were caramel in them.  Interesting cookie for sure.  Below is my adaptation of the recipe listed in the link.


1 stick of butter, softened
2-1/4 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups cornflakes (not crushed)
1-1/4 cups coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugar until very fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix until incorporated.  Add dry ingredients and beat on high speed for 12-14 minutes, scraping bowl often.  Scoop
out cookies onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Flatten cookies with moistened fingertips.  Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool on pan until set.  They will be a little hard to take off the pan at first.
