These are THE cookies I remember my mom making the most as a kid.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Mom's Ranger Joes
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 TBS vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup oats
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 350. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt in a bowl. Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream butter & sugars in a with an electric mixer. Add eggs & vanilla. Slowly add in sifted ingredients and mix until combined. Add oatmeal; then cereal, then coconut. Mix each until combined. Drop into golf ball size portions onto baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until done.
Note: My mom would press the dough down with a fork prior to baking. I press each cookie down with the bottom of a glass AFTER baking. Whatever works for you!
