I love to make these cookies…I have called them “One Cookies” for years because all but ONE ingredient is measured with a ONE! Also, it tends to use up the last little bit of cereal, coconut, and nuts that I might have left.
Hope you enjoy….
1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon maple extract
1 cup oats
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts
~Preheat oven to 350 degrees
~In a mixer, cream together the butter, oil, white sugar, brown sugar, and egg.
~Sift together the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda and add to the mixing bowl. Mix on medium until well combined.
~Add the maple extract, oats, Rice Krispies, coconut, and nuts and mix until all ingredients are well combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight or at least 3 hours.
~Roll dough into 2″ balls and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Make sure you do not crowd the cookies, leave plenty of room for them to spread!
~Dip the bottom of a small glass in sugar and gently press each cookie, flattening just slightly. Re-dip the cup in sugar after each cookie.
~Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheets for a couple of minutes and then transfer to cooling racks.
These cookies turn out lacy and crisp, yet are still soft and delicious. The maple gives a welcome change from the standard vanilla flavor and fills the house with a wonderful syrupy smell. YUM!
