Cornflake Cookies

I am taking a weekend off from having grandkids over or getting into my vehicle and decided we needed some cookies around here.  Dave does love his "treats" before he goes to bed.  You would never know by looking at him versus overweight issues there, so I try to make sure I have something around to encourage him to get calories into him! LOL.  I was eating some cornflakes today and happened to notice a recipe on the box for these cookies.  There was only enough left in the box to make exactly 1 cup of crushed cornflakes like the recipe called for, so I thought it was fate.  The cookies are super good, a combination of peanut butter flavor with chocolate and butterscotch with the crunch of the cornflakes.  Yum.  Here is the recipe:

CORNFLAKE COOKIES:  Makes about 30 cookies with a mini ice cream scoop.

1/2 cup soft butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup crushed cornflakes
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup butterscotch chips

1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2  Beat butter and sugars in medium bowl (can do by hand or with a mixer on medium speed) until creamy.  Add the peanut butter, egg and vanilla.  Beat until well blended and smooth. 
3: Add flour, baking soda, and salt.  Beat until well combined.
4: Stir in the cornflakes, and both chips.  Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets-about 12 per sheet so they have room to spread.  Bake 12-14 minutes until lightly browned.  (Mine were done in 12, but depends on your oven).  May have to let them sit on the baking sheet a few minutes until they cool a little so they lift off easily and don't break.  Then get out the milk and have a cookie party!
