Butterscotch Cornflake Cookies:

This is one of my grandma's recipes that is a very quick and easy treat you can take anywhere and bring home an empty dish! They are so yummy and that really says a lot coming from me, because I don't even like butterscotch! I hope you give them a try!

2 cups butterscotch chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 & 1/2 cup cornflakes cereal (check the label to make sure they are gluten-free)
2 cups mini marshmallows

Place the cornflakes in a large bowl; set aside.
In a microwave safe dish, heat the chips for 30 seconds; stir. Continue to microwave the chips for 15 second intervals, stirring after each, until chips are melted. Stir in the peanut butter.
Pour mixture over the cornflakes and mix until well coated. Add the marshmallows and stir, but stir very briefly, as you don't want the marshmallows to melt.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto wax paper. Let stand until completely set. Store in airtight container between layers of wax paper.

-Although my family prefers the butterscotch chips, these can certainly be made with chocolate chips. 
-If you have ever tasted or heard of the "chow mein noodle cookies" this recipe is the gluten-free equivelent (and in case you didn't know, yes, chow mein noodles are not gluten-free).
