The World's Best Cookies

The World's Best Cookies

I enjoy baking and it is always a pleasure to bake cookies for our guests.  Here is one of my favorite recipes and a guest favorite too.  


The World's Best Cookies

1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1 egg

1 cup canola oil 

1 cup rolled oats, regular

1 cup crushed cornflakes  

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup chopped pecans

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

Cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla, mixing well; then mix in the oil.  Add oats, cornflakes, coconut and pecans, stirring well.  Add the flour, soda, and salt.  Mix well. 

This is a moist dough so I like to refrigerate it before baking.  Refrigerate for an hour.  

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Form dough into small balls.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten with a fork dipped in water.   Bake for about 12 minutes.  Allow to cool on cookie sheets. 


This recipe is from "San Francisco A La Carte" cookbook.
