"C" is for Cookie

A coworker of mine is having a birthday this weekend, and I bring in treats for him every year. But this year I asked him what his favorite cookie was ... and his response was ... My favorite flavor of cookie is cookie.  I am especially fond of cookies.  I cannot overemphasize that.  Just to be clear, cookie monster was a piker compared to me.

Then I found this adorable photo and couldn't resist a quick post.  But to make it worth your while, I am also posting my personal favorite cookie recipe.  Try it sometime!


1 c. shortening

1 c. brown sugar

1 c. white sugar

2 eggs

2 c. flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. vanilla

2 c. Rice Krispies

2 c. oatmeal

1 c. coconut

Cream together shortening and sugars. Add eggs. Sift in flour, salt, soda and baking powder. Add vanilla, Rice Krispies, oatmeal and coconut. Drop with teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees.  WARNING:  These are HIGHLY addictive!!
