Cornflake Cookies
Adapted from

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I use canola)
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 cups cornflakes, measured then crushed (to about the same size as the oats)

*Makes about a dozen cookies

1.  Preheat the oven to 325°.

2.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

3.  In a small bowl, stir together the flour, salt, and baking soda.  Set aside.

4.  In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the sugars and butter.  Beat until smooth.

5.  Add the egg and vanilla to the mixing bowl.  Beat until smooth.

6.  With the mixer on medium speed, slowly add the oil (in a stream at the edge of the bowl) until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

7.  Add the flour mixture to the bowl and mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are just incorporated.

8.  Add the oats and cornflakes to the bowl.  Stir by hand until just blended.

9.  Scoop 2-tbsp sized balls of dough onto the baking sheets, leaving an inch between each.

10.  Bake for about 11 minutes or until the bottom edges are light golden and the tops are no longer shiny.  

11.  Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheets.  Enjoy!
