Nalani posted 12-10-98 7:17 AM


2 1/4 Cup sifted flour
1 tsp double acting baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortning
3/4 Cup cornflakes crushed (now you can buy them in a box)
1 Cup sugar
2 eggs
2 TBS milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup chopped dates or raisins(not chopped)
1/3 cup maraschino cherries (chopped)
extra cherries for decorating

Combine shortening and sugar (I think I used crisco but I'm sure margerine would do) Cream. Add eggs, milk and vanilla.

Sift together dry ingredients, and slowly blend in.
Mix well. Add nuts, cherries, and raisins and mix well. shape into balls using a level teaspoon of dough for each
cookie. Roll ball in crushed cornflakes.

Place on greased cookie sheet. Top with 1/4 cherry and press the cherry down a bit. Bake 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.

On the latest box of Kellogs corn flakes I have the have the same recipe (minus the soda and they do use margarine)
but call it Cherry Dot Cookies.
