"Lots of Good Stuff" Cookies

My Dad gave me this recipe this week and I tried it and WOW, I absolutely loved it.  I love cookies, and am always looking to do new recipes or something different.  The cornflakes in this recipe gives it such awesome texture and taste.  I was thrilled with the results.  My husband and daughter both loved them too.  Thanks Dad for the awesome cookie recipe!! 
I will say I'm a shortening girl when it comes to my cookies but I did use butter in these ones because I was out of shortening.  So use what you like.  For crunchier cookies use butter.  For softer cookies use shortening.  I also cut this recipe in half because I tend to eat all my cookies one after the other until they are gone so to prevent me from eating too many I cut this in half.  It made about 18 good sized cookies, so I think the full recipe probably makes about 36ish.  

Lots of Good Stuff Cookies 
1 c. butter (2 sticks) room temp. (or 1 c. shortening) 
1 1/2 c. packed brown sugar
3/4 c. sugar

1 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
