.i got this recipe from my best friends grandma many moons ago. .they are the most additive cookies omg. .they have oats, corn flakes, pecans, and coconut flakes. .this recipe calls for 1 cup of oil. .i used to use canola oil but i didnt like the oil rings they made on the napkin so i decided to use the now so ever popular coconut oil. .they turned out 10 times better and not oily tasting like before.  .here are some pics of the cookies. .suggestions and comments always welcomed.

.in the bowl.



.on the cookie sheet.



.look at those yummy cookies.

They look really good, and sound even better.  Are you sworn to keep the recipe secret?

I  have a recipe that sounds similar... And looks like the pictures.

1 c. butter
1 c. light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1 c. quick oats
1 c. crushed cornflakes
1/2 c. shredded coconut
1/2 c. chopped pecans
3 1/2 c. sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. sugar
1 c. salad oil

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and beat well. Add oil and vanilla, then oats, coconut and cornflakes, mix well. Add soda, flour and salt. Stir in pecans. Form small balls. Place on cookie sheet and flatten with hands or a fork. Makes about 7 dozen

Well... at least you weren't the one to let the cat cookies out of the bag...

Sorry. I thought they'd be similar, not the same. I'm sad because I can't eat these anymore. I haven't been able to come up with a good gluten free version. They come out too dry or too fally-aparty. They really are the most addictive cookies ever.

I don't get it, either. I have friends like that - won't share a recipe EVER. So, I google, find the recipe, then improve it... because who ever follows recipes exactly, anyway?!

I secretly think (ok, not so secretly, since I'm posting it on a public forum), that many, though not all, of the people who won't share recipes are simply afraid that someone else might actually be able to make something as good as they can. Competetive spirit, if you will. And I wager, that a good number of those people... can only cook like... one or two items really well... so to share the secret would be to lose the one thing they excel at?
