postheadericon Christmas Cookie Swap Idea: Ranger Cookies

Well, the holidays are upon us.  Here in Milwaukee, we have yet to have any snow and today's high was in the 50's.  Global warming is alive and well, my friends.  

Here is a great cookie recipe I wanted to share just in time for all of your cookie swap parties...ranger cookies.  These cookies are really very easy to make and are a little different; not quite an oatmeal cookie, but not quite a sugar cookie either.  Crispy on the outside, but chewy inside...yum!  

These will be a hit in your house, just like they were here.  

So many holiday ideas and less than a month until Christmas!  Look forward to a few extra posts this month as I get ready for one of my favorite cooking holidays of the year.  

Ranger Cookies

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 ungreased baking sheets.  Bake cookies for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove to wire racks.  Makes at least 6 dozen cookies.  

Enjoy these!
