Last week I sent Dan to work with some chocolate chip cookies. They came out great, and apparently people hearted them. I thought I'd continue the tradition by sending him with some Ranger Cookies today.
Ranger CookiesFrom Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook1/2 cup butter, softened1/2 cup granulated sugar1/2 cup packed brown sugar1/2 teaspoon baking powder1/4 teaspoon baking soda1 egg1 teaspoon vanilla1 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour1 cup rolled oats1 cup coconut1 cup raisins, dried cherries, dried cranberries or mixed dried fruit bits.1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Stir in rolled oats, coconut, and fruit.2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light brown and centers are set. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
So, I have to be honest here: I was super bummed as I started to get this blog ready to post I realized that the photos (and batch of cookies I made for the Danimal) were lacking a key ingredient. No, not sugar (though that would be classic me); I forgotted the coconut. I'm fully making another batch after the last keystroke. HOW EMBARRASSING. I'm a asshat.
I'm going to crawl back into the kitchen and make this right. Mutter, mutter, mutter, frazzin, razzin, mutter.
Happy Friday Masterminds.
