    PanNan's Note:

    This recipe has oatmeal, Rice Krispies and coconut. Very crispy and yummy. I clipped it from a Southern Living magazine years ago. It's requested time and again at my house. The key to this recipe is definitely the rice krispies. Kellogs (a Michigan based co) introduced these in 1904. This recipe represents the Midwestern U.S.

      These cookies have a great oatmeal taste, are easy to make and have that great crispy on the outside, chewey on the inside texture that I love in cookies! I found it wasn't necessary to flatten them out with a fork, they spread out fine all by themselves. These are a keeper! I think they would also be great with a hint of nutmeg added.

      Delicious! Not too sweet and not too coconutty...just right. Their crispy texture is a nice change from the chewier/"busier" (nuts, chips, raisins, etc.) type cookies I've been making of late. Just because I really like to try and cut down on fat, the next time I make them I will try my favorite trick of subbing some applesauce for the shortening. I'll let you know, but in the meantime my DH and I are crunching nicely along. Thanks for sharing PanNan!

      Perfect! These cookies were so delicious! I, too, found that there was no need to flatten the cookies as they spread out nicely on their own. I really liked the addition of Rice Krispies which added the perfect amount of "crunch". I think these would be fun to try at Christmas time with the seasonal red and green Rice Krispies to add a colorful touch. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I plan to make it again soon!
