Making cookies with Mrs. Claus

My mother-in-law bought this Mrs. Claus for our family several years ago. It sits in our kitchen each Christmas season and oversees all the holiday baking. What Christmas season would be complete without making some cookies to share with the neighbors?

Tonight we made Ranger Cookies. I tasted these for the first time a few months ago and they are super moist, yet they have a crunch to them. The recipe went straight into my favorite recipe booklet...

Ranger Cookies

1/2 c. margarine or butter
1 1/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 c. Rice Krispies cereal
1 1/3 c. flaked coconut

Beat margarine with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add about half of the flour, sugars, egg, vanilla, and baking soda. Beat until thoroughly combined. Beat in remaining flour. Stir in cereal and coconut. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 7-8 minutes.
