Thanksgiving is official over and now let the Christmas festivities begin. It seemed only fitting for this month's Secret Recipe Club recipe to pick a cookie. Holiday baking is cookies...and maybe some fudge.
This month I Everyday Insanity. There were so many good recipes that were family tested and approved. I really had a hard time picking a recipe. Thank goodness I had already narrowed the search to cookies.
After looking at her endless cookie options, and I do mean endless, I had a list of about 20 I was tempted to make. I finally picked the Idaho Party Cookies because they sounded delicious and the name made me chuckle.
My husband and I joked about why they could be called Idaho Party Cookies.These cookies have cornflakes and coconut. Idaho has potatoes. If anything they should be called Iowa Party Cookies for the corn aspect.
Everyday Insanity got this recipe from a friend who insisted on trying it. They said these were fantastic and I couldn't agree more.
The combination of ingredients may seem a bit strange but they come together great. The textures work well together too. Crunchy and smooth all at once.
As Christmas season approaches I pass this cookie recipe along to you for sharing. They will love you for it.
