Hey y’all, Tiffany here.

This recipe for Ranger Cookies is absolutely one of my favorite cookies recipes!  It’s right up there with sour cream sugar cookies, but this has bit of a saltier taste that comes from the Corn Flakes.

Each time my mom wanted to make me a favorite treat, she would make these ranger cookies.  She even sent them once to me on my mission to Puerto Rico in a care package!

I know you’ll love this Ranger Cookies recipe as much as I do.  If you’re looking for more great recipes, we’ve got a bunch here!
