Patricia Preston: No Bake Cornflake Peanut Butter Cookies

Author Patricia Preston
I love cookies--and what better way to introduce some of my favorite authors than to have them share a recipe--Patricia Preston is one of those wonderfully fun people and I am glad she is here! Welcome!

Thanks to Mary for having me over to share a cookie recipe! The operative term here, folks, is NO BAKE!!! As far as I’m concerned, the less work it is, the better. That’s not to say this doesn’t call for some upper body strength. Wait until you start trying to mix the peanut butter and corn syrup. LOL.


 6 cups corn flakes
1 cup sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla


Have a large bowl and lined cookie sheet handy.

Heat sugar and corn syrup on medium heat until sugar dissolves.
Remove. Add peanut butter and stir. Add vanilla and stir.

Put cornflakes in a large bowl and pour peanut butter mixtures over cornflakes.

Stir gently with wooden spoon or spatula so not to crush cornflakes.

Using a large spoon, drop spoonfuls of mix onto cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

Put aside to cool and set. Takes about 30-45 minutes. Serve.
Store in airtight container. 

Romance & Adventure in old New Orleans. . .

A move from Paris to New Orleans brings disaster to Elise Plaisance’s predictable life as a
lady’s maid. The son of her grief-stricken mistress disappears, and Elise is drawn into a web of espionage and lies as war threatens the city.

Captain Jesse Cross doesn’t fancy himself as a lovelorn soldier desperate for a woman until a mysterious French spy captivates his imagination. Elise’s romance with the captain is a frail illusion, born in the darkness of a French Quarter courtyard and never meant to last forever.

Amid war and betrayal, Elise must risk everything to rescue her mistress’s son before all is lost, and Jesse knows he has to save her even if it means sacrificing his honor and his life.

Patricia Preston writes mainstream romances with plenty of drama and wit. She is currently working on a contemporary series for Kensington Publishing. She loves the French Quarter in New Orleans and decided to do a historical romance series set during the Battle of New Orleans era in 1814-1815. To Save a Lady is available at Amazon. Besides romances, she writes short stories for her Humor and Happy Endings series. Set in the South and filled with fun, these stories will make you smile.
