About 5 Dozen
1 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups quick cooking rolled oats
2 cups crisp rice cereal
1 cup shredded coconut
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Cream the shortening and sugars; beat in the eggs and vanilla and continue beating until very light.
- Measure the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a fine strainer set over the sugar mixture; shake through.
- Mix well on low speed.
- Stir in the oats, crisp rice cereal, and coconut. The dough will be fairly crumbly; this is as it should be.
- Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough, and use wet hands to roll them into balls; place on parchment or Silpat-lined baking sheets, and press down slightly.
- Bake 11-13 minutes or until the edges begin to brown.
- Remove from the oven, transfer to cooling racks and cool thoroughly. Store in an airtight container.
