Mis Galletas

When life seems hard I gravitate toward baking something delicious.  Not necessarily to eat it, but because baking takes patience, precision and evokes a sense of calm. You have to slow down and focus or you risk ruining your final product.  I know it's trivial, but it seems to work.

Here's recipe for something baked and delicious (and not too difficult) that will warm up your heart and soul just a little bit. 'Mis Galletas' simply means 'My Cookies'.  This recipe is a sentimental original from my mom's handwritten recipe book which makes it all the more comforting.  Enjoy.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8-12 minutes
Servings: Makes about 3 dozen cookies

3   Cups Corn Flakes
1   Can sweetened condensed milk
½  Cup peanut butter
¾  Cup coconut flakes
¾  Cup chocolate chips (optional)

1. Heat oven to 350┬║.
2. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
3. Put heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake for 8-12 minutes.  When edges of the cookies brown they're ready.
5. Remove them from the sheet immediately and lay them on a wire rack to cool.
6. Try not to eat all of them.

NOTE: If the mixture is not holding its form just add more Corn Flakes.
