This recipe is one of my 9 grandchildren’s favourite cookies. We would bake them often when they came for a visit to Grandma and Grandpa’s house. If you use a cookie scoop, it will take about 1/4 of the time instead of using a spoon to drop the cookie dough. More time to bake another recipe or read them stories or walk down our country road. These cookies are crisp and delicious and will travel well to any sports activity. They will give you energy to play well! They will freeze well if they make it to the freezer! Enjoy!
RICE KRISPIE AND OATMEAL COOKIES
The recipe makes 5- 1/2 dozen cookies.
INGREDIENTS: 1 cup butter at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 cup white sugar
2 extra large eggs
2 tsp. pure vanilla
1- 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 level tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. fine salt
2 cups quick cooking rolled opats
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup sweetened dessicated coconut
-Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. OR 325 degrees convection bake. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. (Did you know that you can re-use parchment paper for many bakings, just wipe it with a damp cloth after using.I store my cookie sheets standing on their side with the sheets of parchment paper left on them.)
-Cream the butter and both sugars together until nice and fluffy. You can do this by hand or with an electric mixer using the paddle attachment.
-Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix well.
-Add the flour, baking soda and baking powder and salt. Mix well.
-Stir in the rolled oats, Rice Krispies and coconut. Mix to combine everything.
-Use a cookie scoop for the easiest way to get balls of cookie dough. (We sell all sizes of scoops at Sharyn’s Pantry.) or use a teaspoon to drop balls of dough on your parchment lined cookie sheets.
-Take a fork, dipped in flour and flatten the balls of cookie dough until quite thin.
-Bake the cookies in your pre
-heated oven for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
-Allow the baked cookies to sit on the cookie sheets for a few minutes after baking. Then place them on wire cooling racks to cool completely.
-You will have 5- 1/2 dozen delicious cookies to enjoy. They freeze well if they make it to your freezer. ENJOY!
