. . . Cookie Time Tuesday-Forest Ranger Cookies . . .

Today's recipe is one of my favorites so far!  I am not a coconut eater but these cookies are so yummy.  I was inspired to make them after seeing that over on A Pretty Life In The Suburbs.  I did alter my recipe just a tad by adding chocolate chips.  I have also seen this recipe made with Rice Krispies and I saw a Peanut Butter based one as well.   These turned out so moist and chewy.  I would highly recommend this recipe!  Using colored coconut would add a great seasonal twist to it too.

Forest Ranger Cookies with Chocolate Chips

Print Recipe HERE

You will need:
1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups oats
2 cups coconut
2 cups cornflakes

1 cup mini chocolate chips
Gather up your ingredients

Mix sugars and butter or margarine together

Add your eggs one at a time

In a seperate bowl mix the flour, baking soda and baking powder together

In another bowl mix your cornflackes, oats, coconut and chocolate chips together

Mix your flour mixture and butter mixture together until well combined

Add your cornflake mixture to the combined dough and mix well

Roll dough into balls (about 1 to 2 inch balls works great) and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet

Flatten balls with a floured fork.  Don't over flatten the cookie dough

Once they are pressed down they are ready to bake. 

Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes.  I found that in my oven 11 minutes was perfect.

Let cool on cookie sheet for about 1 minute

Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely

Yummy in the tummy!
