Cornflake cookies...

As with with most good things, this recipe has humble beginnings.  Don't let the fact that it has cornflakes in it fool you...the cereal ends up tasting a bit like toffee pieces and the cookie dough is just crunchy enough to be very dangerous.  I first had a cookie like this a while back and overheard a lady ask the cook for the recipe...she said she could NOT divulge the secret!  I'm totally serious and so was the cook; she wouldn't budge.  I kind of thought it was a bit rude at the time, but now that I have the recipe from a google search I know that it was probably a generous favor to keep it a secret since the cookie dough needs locked up to stay away from it.  Putting a kitchen towel over the bowl in-between batches didn't really work for me. =)  If you don't have the recipe already, you'll really wish I hadn't posted the secret code for chewy just salty enough cookies...honest you'll be quite annoyed when the dough is sitting like a siren on your counter.  Then again, you won't find yourself in the awkward position of asking for the recipe and being turned down either. ;)
