Holiday cookies: Day 18 — World’s Best Cookie

This recipe is from “Grannie” Joann Ewert, who writes, “A church recipe book came out almost 10 years ago. After reading the recipe book, I just had to try these ‘best cookies.’ And they are good! They turn out best if you keep them small. It is a large recipe, making five (dozen) to six dozen. The cookies are not fancy, but the kind you can add to a tray of pretty ones.”


1 cup brown sugar

1 cup white sugar

3/4 cup butter or margarine

3/4 cup oil

1 teaspoon salt

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup oatmeal

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup corn flakes, crushed

3-1/2 cups flour

1/2 cup coconut

1/2 cup walnuts

Mix sugars, margarine, salt, oil, egg and vanilla. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk if the batter doesn’t come together. Place walnut-size dough on baking sheet. Press down with fork dipped in water. Bake for eight to 10 minutes at 350 degrees or until lightly browned.
