My grandmother used to always have these cookies when we went to visit. They are the best oatmeal cookie you'll ever eat.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

    Advertisement
  • Beat brown sugar, white sugar, and butter together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg one at a time, allowing the first to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next with the vanilla.

  • Stir flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Beat into the butter mixture until just incorporated into a dough. Fold oats, crispy rice cereal, and coconut into the dough; mixing just enough to evenly combine.

  • Drop cookie dough by teaspoonful onto baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until browned, 8 to 9 minutes. Cool cookies slightly on baking sheets before moving to cooling racks to cool completely.

Jules2Jewels You are lucky your grandmother made these for you. We really liked them. A nice coconutty chew and a little crisp on the edge is just the way I like them. I threw a few butterscotch chips in the last batch thought they were great with and without. Baking for 9 minutes worked perfectly for me Read More

I used 1/4 cup less of both sugars as other reviews mentioned added 1/4 tsp extra of baking powder and chilled for about 30 minutes before baking. These were exactly what I was looking for like a Ranger cookie! Shared some with a friend and neighbor even after seveal days the cookies that were left were still soft. My new favorite! Read More

They cookies were good. We went directly off this recipe. However they did end up very thin... Which is not what I had expected by looking at the picture on this recipe. Read More

Every once in a while you find a recipe that you absolutely love. For me this is one of those recipes. I was afraid it would be too sweet but it was just perfect. The only change I made was to increase the baking time because I love cookies that have a little crunch. Thanks for sharing your Grandmother s recipe. Read More

I've looked for this recipe but never could find it. My mother made them in the 40's. I have to tweet the recipe for high altitude so not as much sugar and a little more flour or they spread too much and are way too thin. Thanks very much for the recipe. I'll make them today Read More

Good recipe. I did not add the white sugar the recipe turned out good and was plenty sweet. I added about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Will make it again. Read More

This was awesome. I followed the recipe exactly and these little guys turned out perfectly. I'm a sucker for rice krispies in desert-form so their addition was original and necessary. This is my default cookie recipe now. Thanks to the original poster. Read More

My mom always made a recipe similar to this. My cookies are not flat and greasy at all. I'm giving 4 stars because this recipe needs more oats and Rice Krispies. I think my moms recipe is 5-star.;) My mom's recipe uses 1 cup Crisco equal amounts of sugars (1 cup) 1 tsp of baking soda (no baking powder) 1 tsp vanilla (rather than 1 TB) and 2 cups each oats and Rice Krispies. The other listed ingredients were the same. I love these. I have to smoosh the dough together as it's dense and can fall apart a little. I like them crunchy so 10-12 min on 350 is about perfect. I posted a picture of how mine turn out. They definitely look different than all the others.;) Read More
