Burke’s Crunchy Cookies

by Laura
If you still need a cookie recipe to leave something special for Santa tonight here’s another great one. This is a recipe that was recently shared on Studio 5 (a local television show) by Chalene McGrath. This is a recipe that she got from her grandmother. If you’ve ever had a ranger cookie (which is one of my favorite cookies), it is similar to that but with the addition of chocolate chips. I know Santa would love these cookies.

Burke’s Crunchy Cookies
1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. butter
2 eggs
1 t. soda
2 c. flour
1 c. rice crispies
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 c. regular oats
1/2 c. coconut
2 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
1-2 t. vanilla extract

Cream sugars and shortening well, then add eggs, one at a time and vanilla. Whisk flour, soda, baking powder together and add to sugar mixture. Lastly stir in (or use dough hook) oatmeal, rice crispies, and coconut, and chocolate chips. Form into balls, press flat with your hand on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes (I cooked mine for 9 minutes). They should look a bit undercooked. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then cool the rest of the way on a cooling rack.
