Rice Krispies Cookies

These come in a close second, right behind Snickerdoodles, in the favorite cookie department at our house. This recipe comes from my aunt, who raised 8 children on very little money, so as an added bonus, this an easy and frugal recipe, too.
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-3/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 2 cups crisped rice cereal
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream the shortening and the two sugars together in a large bowl. Add the vanilla and eggs.
3. Stir the flour, soda, salt, and baking powder together in a medium bowl. Stir in to the creamed mixture.
4. Stir in the oatmeal, and then the rice krispies.
5. Form dough into 1-1/2 balls and place onto an ungreased baking sheet.
6. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly brown.
7. Remove from baking sheet and cool on a wire rack.

This yields 36 large cookies. We usually at least double the recipe, since the cookies store or freeze well, and we're cookie hogs anyway.
