Tiger Cookies

Yield Makes 5 dozen
Ribbons of melted milk chocolate swirl through these crunchy little cookies.


  • 3/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups sugar-coated corn flakes cereal, slightly crushed
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) milk chocolate morsels, melted and cooled to room temperature

How to Make It

  1. Beat shortening in a large mixing bowl at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

  2. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; stir well. Add to sugar mixture, blending well. Stir in cereal.

  3. Drizzle half of chocolate over dough; stir lightly. Drizzle remaining chocolate over dough; stir lightly, leaving streaks of chocolate. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire racks to cool.
