the Elusive Cornflake Cookie

When I was a kid my mother used to make some kinda cookie that had cornflakes in it. I liked them alot...but I never got the recipe from her.
When my son went to boot camp, I decided I'd track it down, make some...and send them to him at boot camp. I figured he could share them with his whole crew, battalion, or whatever it is the Army calls them these days.  I made em, sent em, and they ate em.  Nuff said.  Without further ado... here's the recipe.
