Didn't taste all that hot. The cornflakes were still hard and I brought fresh (not stale) corn flakes.

These cookies are great. Very easy to make and taste great. I don't know what the person who gave them one star is talking about but maybe they should check their taste buds

OMG. What a waste of time and ingredients. This was a HORRIBLE cookie. Way too sweet, and even though I crushed the cornflakes well, there were a few that tasted hard. VERY disappointed, because I thought it would be a nice, darker, chewy cookie. YUK.

These cookies are great. the only people that have not liked them are the ones who are alergic to one of the ingredients.
