Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder Recipe #1 - Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies

I started reading this book last week and came across my first recipe while reading.  They turned out delicious and my taste-tester husband LOVED them! Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, rack in the middle position.

1 cup butter (2 sticks, melted)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 beaten eggs (you can beat them up with a fork)
2-1/2 cups flour (not sifted)
2 cups crushed corn flakes (just crush them with your hands)
1 to 2 cups chocolate chips

Melt butter, add the sugars and stir.  Add soda, salt vanilla, and beaten eggs. Mix well. Then add flour and stir it in. Add crushed corn flakes and chocolate chips and mix it all thoroughly.

Form dough into walnut-sized balls with your fingers and place on a greased cookie sheet, 12 to a standard sheet. Press them down slightly with a floured or greased spatula.

Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, them remove to a wire rack until they're completely cool. (The rack is important--it makes them crisp.)

Yield: 6 to 8 dozen, depending on cookie size.

Hannah's Note: If these cookies spread out too much in the oven, reduce temp. to 350 degrees F and do not flatten before baking.
