No-Bake Cornflake Cookies

“I grew up on a farm where we hand-milked cows and had plenty of milk and cream to use for cooking. Sometimes we’d substitute light cream for the evaporated milk in this recipe. We’d rarely let these cookies cool before sampling them, and a batch never lasted a day!” —Denise Marnell, Hereford, Texas
