5 Ways to Make Ranger Cookies
Ranger cookies, a nostalgic classic, are most famous for their texture: Ever so slightly crispy on the outside, while being tender and cake-like on the inside. Each cookie is packed with add-ins like rice cereal, corn flakes, oats, flaked coconut, and more. Serve up a plateful of ranger cookies with a few glasses of milk, or even some cups of black coffee to balance out the sweetness.
