Family Recipe Friday


My absolute favorite cookies as a child.  I have no idea who Mary Lee was.  There are a couple of recipes with her name on them in my grandmother's cookbooks; I suppose she was a friend in town.   
 
Mary Lee’s Cookies
(Grandma Berry)

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.  Add eggs and mix well.  Add vanilla and mix.

In a separate bowl, mix flour, oats, Rice Krispies, baking soda and baking powder.  Combine dry ingredients with the butter and sugar mixture and mix well.  Fold in coconut. 

Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets.  Bake at 450 degrees for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.
