Ranger Cookies


A couple of weeks ago my son Josh returned from a friend's house and handed me a sheet of paper.  He announced, "I found your next blog post!"  He said his friend's mom made the best cookies, and he asked her for the recipe so I could make them and post them on my blog.  As I glanced over the recipe I noticed coconut was listed as an ingredient.  I am not a fan of coconut and neither is Josh so I was surprised that he liked this recipe so much.  He said the cookies were really good even with coconut in them.  Yesterday was a half day of school so he helped me make these cookies.  I have to agree with him that they are really good, even with the coconut.  The cookie is soft and chewy, and the coconut does add a bit flavor but not too much.  Thanks to Stacey for sharing this wonderful recipe with us.

  5. The Rice Krispies are a cool ingredient. Lovely looking cookies. This is usually the technique my husband uses to get me to make something he's craving....."but honey, you haven't posted this in your blog yet." ;)

  18. Why are they called Ranger cookies anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  19. That's a good question Jeff--I'm not sure why they are called ranger cookies. I think it is because the Texas Rangers, Forest Rangers, and Army Rangers all like to eat them in their Ford Rangers.
