The Best Cowboy Cookies

"This recipe came from my friend's grandmother. It's a hit whenever I make them. They should be called the vanishing cookie! I always make a double batch, so the recipe is doubled."

ingredients

directions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix together the Rice Crispies, oatmeal and coconut--set aside.
  • Sift together flour, soda, powder and salt--set aside.
  • In a very large bowl, cream brown sugar, white sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture to creamed mixture. Add oatmeal mixture and mix together. I use my hands (scrubbed first!) for this part--it's easier.
  • Drop by spoonful on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes depending on your oven. If you like them soft.bake less.

    These are super yummy. I can't stop eating them. Easy to make. I did 1/2 the recipe and it made a lot.

    This is a wonderful cookie! All that sugar makes for butterscotchy goodness! I used butter flavored crisco, and added a smidge of cinnamon & nutmeg. The cookies baked up beautifully using my large cookie scoop. Looks like I stopped by the bakery!
