1 cup butter, softened
1/5 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups cake flour
2 cups corn flakes, finely crushed (measure first, then crush)
1 cup chopped nuts
Confectioners' sugar or cinnamon sugar*
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat butter and sugar. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon. Mix in flour and corn flakes, blending thoroughly. Stir in nuts.
Roll into 1-inch balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until firm and golden.
Roll in confectioners' sugar while still hot.
* For different tastes, try rolling half the cookies in confectioners' sugar and the other half in granulated sugar to which you've added some cinnamon.
