Dishpan Cookies

My Mom loved these cookies. She enjoyed them so much that she always had some made... and I mean always. Anytime I would come home from school, come home for college, or come home for a visit they would be sitting in a container on the kitchen counter. I have eaten more of these cookies then I can count (and I am not just talking about last night). Now, I am getting requests from friend and family for the cookies so I thought I would share them with you.

Oh ya' - you can almost convince yourself they are healthy if you use the heart healthy oils, baking Splenda, and the corn flakes that are packed with vitamins. ;) You will need a big bowl. This recipe makes 9-12 dozen... enough to share if you feel like it.
