I like making these cookies when I am trying to finish off the tail ends of baking goods. They have a little bit of everything and once you have one, you'll want several more ... they are definitely addicting, so you may not want to wait to make these!
These are similar to what some call "ranger" cookies, but I have yet to find this recipe on the internet. It was in a 1977 "simply from scratch" recipe book by Pillsbury.
CRISP 'N CRUNCHY COOKIES
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of targer
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup cooking oil
1 tsp. vanilla
3-1/2 cups flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup coconut
1 cup rice krispies cereal
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In large bowl, combine first 9 ingredients; beat 2 minutes on medium speed until smooth. Add flour; beat one minute on slow speed until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto UNgreased cookie sheets. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass dipped in sugar.
Bake 10-14 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool.
Pour a large glass of milk and ENJOY!
