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 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.
