“One” Cookies

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)

1 egg

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!

  1. These cookies are wonderful! So nice & crisp! I’m not a big maple fan, so I used orange extract instead and a bit or orange zest instead. Came out very nice. THANKS for a great recipe. I’ll definitely be using this one again!

  2. I teally did…in fact I posted my adapted recipe in my blog at: http://whatscookinwithfaithy.blogspot.com/2013/05/orange-choco-crispy-cookies.html – with credits to you of course!

    Was wondering if the oats are instant or regular and what kind of nuts do you recommend?

    I made the cookies and everyone loved them! So easy to make and I too loved the aroma the maple extract filled the house with! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
