Million Dollar Cookies

14 Jun

Now these cookies don’t look too exciting, but hear me out!

A trip home to Ohio is never complete without at least 1 baking session. On my first day in town, my mom mentioned that she wanted to make these cookies. I wasn’t actually planning to bake that day, but she was going to make them anyways, and I hadn’t made this kind before, so why not? This cookie contains rice krispies, coconut, and walnuts which all bring a little something to the table. After a minor dispute about using butter instead of margarine (the original recipe called for marg) we ended up with quite a delicious cookie. All the flavors were present, and using the butter was definitely the better choice. And even my Grandma gave them her seal of approval! Next time I might add some dark chocolate chips though!

Million Dollar Cookies

  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 c. oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 c. oatmeal
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1 c. rice krispies
  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 c. coconut
  • 1 t. cream of tartar
  • 1/2 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Using an electric mixer, cream the sugars with the butter. Add the oil, egg, and vanilla mixing well after each addition. Then add the remaining dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Using a small tablespoon or a cookie scoop, place equal-sized scoops of the batter onto a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-12 minutes and then place a drying rack to cool.

Enjoy!
