Mrs. Edison’s Old Fashioned Recipe for Corn Flake Cookies

Posted by Edison Ford Winter Estates On November 18th

Old Fashioned Recipe for Corn Flake Cookies

Whites of 2 eggs beaten stiff
1 cup of pecans and a few black walnuts cut in pieces
½ cup sugar
2 cups toasted corn flakes

Beat egg whites stiff, adding sugar gradually.  Fold in nuts and carefully fold in corn flakes so as not to break them.  Drop on greased tin and bake in very slow oven.
