My mom use to have these cookies ready for me after school.
I had gotten the basic recipe from my mom but the I was missing one key ingredient.
I made this recipe for the longest time and something was not right. One Sunday my sister was over and had a cookie and said they tasted just like Mom's without the Rice Krispies in them. Rice Krispies! Mom had told me about the oatmeal and coconut flakes and nuts and that in the late 60's she started adding wheat germ but did not mention the Rice Krispies.
These cookies are really good. I know 2 little kids in Maryland who would be disappointed if they see me without the cookies. This recipe is near and dear to my heart. It is written as my Mom told it to me (except for the Rice Krispies part). —Lucia from Madison
6 to 8 dozen cookies
2 1/4 cups
brown sugar (my mom did not specify light or dark brown sugar but I usually use light))
oatmeal (again my mom did not specify instant or old fashion, I use which ever I have)
