Coconut Corn Nut Cookies

This is a cookie I've been making for at least 20 years from a cookbook entitled Applehood and Motherpie (thank you, Min). The name is deceiving because there are no corn nuts in this cookie. The coconut flavor is barely detectable. I mention this because I think even a coconut-hater would like this cookie. The coconut mostly provides texture, which is really really chewy. YUM. The recipe calls for corn flakes but I've been known to substitute Special K if it's all I have. I love this cookie.

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 cups corn flakes
2 cups coconut
1 t. vanilla

Cream butter and sugars and add eggs. Stir in remaining ingredients and spoon onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes.

Oh my gosh, I used to love corn nuts, but had forgotten all about them. Do they even sell them anymore?

Anyway, the cookies sound interesting. They must be good if you've been making them that long.
