These cookies freeze well, which is good, because this recipe makes a lot! Feel free to cut it in half. You'll still have plenty of cookies to go around.
Here's the recipe:
1 1/2 C. margarine
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
1 1/2 C. white sugar
1 1/2 C. vegetable oil
5 1/4 C. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 1/2 C. Rice Krispies
1 1/2 C. regular or quick cooking oatmeal
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream together the margarine, sugars, eggs and vegetable oil. Add the flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. (Jeff once spent half an hour at the grocery store with a store employee trying to help him find cream of tartar in the dairy case. True story.) Mix well.
Fold in the Rice Krispies and oatmeal until well blended.
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets, and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Deliciously sweet and crunchy and even a little bit addictive. Enjoy!
