Momma Box Cookies

These delectable cookies are in frequent demand with many of my customers. Made a batch tonight for the freezer that I will bake off tomorrow. BTW, these cookies are delicious crumbled on top of yogurt and drizzled with a bit of local honey! Enjoy! I am really BAD! I won't share this recipe with anyone at work!

Momma Box Cookies

1 lb. butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups dark brown sugar
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract

4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Sift together.

4 cups crushed cornflakes
4 cups oatmeal
2 cups chopped pecans
2 cups coconut
2 cups dried cranberries or chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla extract, beat 2-3 minutes until creamy. Add sifted ingredients and mix until smooth. Combine cornflakes, oatmeal, coconut, pecans and cranberries or chocolate chips. Add creamed mixture. I, now put on the gloves and mix by hand until thoroughly combined.
Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets using a 2 oz. scoop. Cover and freeze.
Remove # of cookies desired 10 minutes before baking. Place on parchment lined baking sheet 2" apart. Bake in preheated 350 oven for 8-10 minutes until golden.
