Crispy Ranger Cookies

Last week I found several recipes on our Foodie Friends Friday link party that I wanted to try. These cookies were the first thing I baked.

Crispy, buttery, nutty taste without the nuts, chewy center....oh delicious.

The recipe came from Milwaukee Kitchen. Go HERE to find her recipe and other great ideas she has to offer. This recipe was originally found at TasteofHome.com





Ranger Cookies
from TasteofHome.com

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup shredded coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  

In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugars until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs and vanilla.  Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Gradually add this mixture to the creamed mixture.  Stir in the oats, cereal and coconut.  

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto un-greased baking sheets or silicone sheets on baking sheets.  Bake cookies for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove to wire racks.  Makes at least 6 dozen cookies.   


**In my oven 11 minutes was the perfect time and it made 5 dozen for me.**
