Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies

There is a delightful book series by Joanne Fluke (http://www.murdershebaked.com/). The first book I read was Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder. I was pleasantly surprised to find recipes throughout the book. The cookies are wonderful. This is the first recipe in the book:

Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies

1 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups crushed corn flakes
1-2 cups chocolate chips

Mix together the melted butter and sugars. Add baking soda, salt, vanilla and eggs. Mix well. Mix in the flour. Finally, add the cornflakes and chocolate chips. Form dough into walnut sized balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Press down with a fork in a criss-cross pattern, as you would with peanut butter cookies. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Remove to a wire rack. This is key in creating the crispiness of the cookies.
