CARTS Cookie Recipe
BLEND IN A BIG BOWL:
4 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. brown sugar
1 c. white sugar
2 c. melted butter (1lb) - not too hot
MIX AND ADD TO BIG BOWL:
2 c. rice crispies
2 c. rolled oats (can use 1 c. old fashioned and 1 c. quick)
1 c. raisins
2 c. chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. coconut
BLEND AND ADD:
4 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
Let sit awhile for easier handling, if desired. Roll measured dough into balls (1/3 c. of dough). Place on pan and squish into patty.
Bake 350 degrees until golden (approx. 15 min; 13 min in convection oven). Often our friends have trouble with their teeth and prefer a softer cookie.
IMPORTANT! COOL THOROUGHLY BEFORE PACKAGING.
Parchment paper helps the cookies bake better.
Let the cookies cool about a minute before moving carefully with a spatula to a cooling rack.
These cookies freeze very well, so can be made at your convenience.
