    Chocolate chips and walnuts are my favourite part of these biscuits but they also include cornflakes, oats, coconut and spices.

    This was the best cookie recipe I have ever made. The cookies are so delicous you wouldn't believe. My kids ate up the cookies in less than a day. Trust me after you eat one you'll have to eat another and another. If you don't have mace then you can add 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg as a substitute. I really recommned making these cookies!  -  30 Jun 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Wonderful cookie!! Received raved reviews at work. Incidently, I used frosted flakes instead of regular flakes, and the results were excellent. Frosted flakes, because of their extra thickness, tend to hold up better in raw cookie dough, to not lose their crispiness.  -  08 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were great! Five STARS all the way! I made them over the holiday weekend for visiting relatives, and everyone loved them. I took the tip and substituted the mace(which I didn't have)with nutmeg. I'm glad that I didn't see those two last wacky reviews, or I might not have tried these....and I'm SO glad that I did!  -  02 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
