Christmas Eve

So are you all ready? I guess we're as ready as we're going to get around here. Yesterday Frankie and I made some Ranger Cookies for ..... Santa.. that's right, for Santa. I haven't baked in ages, so I was pretty happy they turned out delicious. A little too delicious really..
Here's the recipe:
1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal (not the quick oats..)
2 cups cornflakes
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup pecans
Preheat oven to 375.. Cream butter, eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda till all mixed in, then drop in all the remaining ingredients and lightly mix.. you want all the stuff mixed up, but you don't want to lose the crunch of the cereal. Bake for 8-10 minutes.. my oven took 10 and the centers are nice and chewy, the outside a little crunchy.
If you checked the link you'll see there are plenty of variations!!! I bet they'd make for a nice breakfast with a cup of coffee!!!

Merry Christmas Pam and to all of yours too! My daughter came home yesterday for a the afternoon while her husband was still at work and we had a baking day too. And I have that exact Susan Branch book sitting on top of the stack but like you my drink is coffee not tea!
