Ranger Cookies for Christmas

Most of you are probably wondering what a ranger cookie is.  It is a well loved cookie in my family.  It takes some patience with the cooking time so you'll need to make them in small batches.  Maybe that is the reason why so many people have forgotten about this cookie.  It has wonderful flavors and textures with coconut, rice krispies and nuts.  If you want to impress someone with a cookie you made, this is definitely the one to serve.  These are delightfully crisp and chewy.


1 c Shortening or Margarine
1 c Sugar
1 c Brown Sugar
2 Eggs
2 c Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 c Coconut
1 tsp Vanilla
2 1/2 c Rice Krispies
Nuts to liking, chopped (I used chopped Pecans, about 1/2-1 cup)

Preheat oven to 250 degrees f.  In a large bowl, mix Shortening (or margarine), Sugar and Brown Sugar.  Add Eggs and Vanilla.  In a separate bowl, mix Flour, Baking Soda and Baking Powder.  Add to wet mix.  Stir in the Coconut, Rice Krispies and Nuts of your choice.

This recipe calls for you to bake these at 250 degrees f for 30 minutes.  Some ovens are different and can really affect the cooking times on these.  You may have to increase your temperature and bake longer if these don't turn golden brown once the 30 minutes is up.  Bake until golden brown.
