Food Friday: Ranger Cookies

In light of the World Series, and our loyalties, JT feels that we should call these cookies Giants cookies.  Call them what you will, they are yummy.  This is yet another old-fashioned cookie recipe scored from my grandmother. 

1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar, packed

2 eggs
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups rolled oats

2 cups cornflakes

1 cup shredded coconut

Cream butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs, 1 at a time.

 Sift flour with baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Stir into butter mixture.  Add vanilla extract, oats, cornflakes and coconut.  Stir until blended.

  Drop a generous teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheet. 
Bake smaller cookies at 375 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.

Yield 4-5 dozen cookies, providing you don’t eat volumes of the cookie dough.  Not that I would do that or anything.

Coconut and cornflakes, huh? Interesting. No one at my house likes coconut but me, but I guess that means I'd just have to eat the whole batch. Darn.
