  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • Confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar*


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Beat butter and sugar. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon.
  3. Mix in flour and corn flakes, blending thoroughly. Stir in nuts.
  4. Roll into 1-inch balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until firm and golden.
