Mary’s Cowboy Cookies

What is it about the cowboy scenario that speaks to us from the days when we went to the movies on Saturday afternoon to see Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and of course, Randolph Scott? As I recall, the price of admission at our local theater was 35 cents.

We listened to The Lone Ranger on the radio and can’t seem to get “hi-o Silver…awayyyyyyy….out of our memories. My friend Mary shared her cookie recipe with me and now I’ll share it with you.

1 Cup Butter

1 Cup Sugar (White)

1 Cup Brown Sugar

2 Eggs

2 Cups Flour

1/2 t. Salt

1 t. Baking Soda

1 t. Baking Powder

1 t. Vanilla

2 1/2 Cups Oatmeal

1 Cup Chips (Chocolate or any flavor)

1 Cup Rice Crispies

Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs. Add flour, salt, soda, baking powder and mix well. Stir in vanilla, oatmeal, chips and crispies. Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 deg. for 10 minutes.

The future is right ahead of me and new projects seem to beckon... Friends and memories of times past remain with me today. I love to share my stories along with comments and opinions (of course) of today's challenges. Photography is my hobby and opportunities to capture the scenes before me are mine for the taking. Born and raised in Michigan, the peaceful woods and wildlife trails have always attracted me. Graduating from high school in the early fifties, college was of no interest to me. I have learned one important fact about life; whover decided when a person becomes "old"...didn't know what they were talking about...My theory is; you're as old as you think you are....(I'm thinking about it..haven't decided yet.)
