Lacy Oat Crispy Cookies
- 125 ml 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 125 ml 1/2 cup white sugar
- 125 ml 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 ml 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 300 ml 1-1/4 cup Rice Krispies* cereal
- 300 ml 1-1/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal (not instant)
- 125 ml 1/2 cup coconut
- 45 ml 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 2 ml 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 ml 1/4 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F).
2. In a stand mixer, cream butter and both sugars together until well blended. Add egg and vanilla then beat until smooth.
3. Stir in Rice Krispies* cereal, oatmeal, coconut, flour, baking soda and salt.
4. Scoop batter (10 ml/2 tsp per cookie) onto a parchment lined baking sheet, 6 cookies per sheet (they really spread out). Press down lightly with a fork dipped in water.
5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown.
6. After 2 minutes, use a thin spatula to carefully move each cookie to a cooling rack.
These are a perfect after school snack for kids (and moms). With simple pantry staples like oats, coconut and Rice Krispies* cereal and a quick prep time, they're easy to be popular. Using a tall, thin cello bag and festive ribbon, these cookies dress up quickly as a teacher's gift or a casual host gift for a family gathering. It's important to use parchment paper to prevent these cookies from sticking (greasing the pan won't do the trick). Makes 24. This recipe can easily be doubled.
