Texas Ranger Cookies

I have a picture for this recipe…but being the scatterbrained person I’ve been for the last two weeks, my pictures are in the camera and my camera is at home. (Found the pictures!) 🙂

So…here is a great recipe that I love to make. As with chocolate chip cookies…most of it never makes it to the cooked cookie…this is awesome dough. 🙂

On page 12 of the Frontier Chuckwagon Cookin’ cookbook (1975, Baxter Lane Company, Amarillo, TX) is the TEXAS RANGER COOKIE recipe.

TEXAS RANGER COOKIES

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups Corn Flakes
2 cups uncooked quick Oates
2 cups flour, sifted with
2 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shreaded coconut (I don’t use this)
1 cup chopped dates (nor this)
1 tsp vanilla

Cream sugar and shortening, add eggs and blend. Gradually add sifted dry ingredients and mix together. Add other ingredients. Drop by teaspoon on lightly greased cookie sheet (I use parchment paper and do not grease) . Bake at 375 degrees. (There was no time, I use 10 minutes).

    I use these cookies for everything: school parties, office parties, church parties and family get togethers. Everybody is always pleasantly surprised by how good they are. I always use the coconut–it makes them a little chewy. I don’tuse the dates, but you can easily replace those with raisins. Bake for exactly 10 minutes–any longer and they’re overcooked.
