Recipe from Nancy Stahl, Loveland, OH
- 2 c flour
- 2 c oatmeal (up to 1 c more)
- 2 c Rice Krispies (up to 1 c more)
- 1 t baking soda
- 1/2 t baking powder
- 1/2 t salt
- 1 c butter, softened
- 1 c white sugar (slightly less ok)
- 1 c firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 egg, slightly beaten
- 1 t vanilla extract
- Raisins or choc chips as desired
Preheat oven to 350. Combine first 6 ingredients. Cream butter; gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla: mix well. Gradually stir in dry ingredients, mixing well after each addition. Stir in raisins or chips, if using. Don’t use too many; tastes best with just a few.
Roll the balls big because there’s not much dough to rise with all the Rice Krispies and oatmeal in them. We like these cookies best when they are thick. Always make one test cookie. If it flattens out too much, add more oatmeal and Rice Krispies. Let cookies sit on tray to finish baking.
Bake cookies for 10-12 minutes.
