I'm going to buy a liner the next time i'm at BB&B!
I don't know what went wrong! I've baked tons of cookies and have never had this happen
This is one of the Better Homes & Garden Recipes for Ranger Cookies- but i tweaked it to make them my way and add a few things, so it's not their exact recipe! (Also you can really add what you want to it - i like chocolate chips, rasins, flaked coconut, crushed almonds, rolled oats, and rice cereal in mine - but you can be as creative as you want. My niece likes it when i put dried cherries in the ones i make for her)
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg (I use large brown ones)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (more if the dough gets thin)
2 cups rice krispy cereal
1 cup rolled oats
2 cups chocolate chips (i like a lot in mine!)
1 cup rasins (i was out this time so i didn't use any)
1 1/3 cup flaked coconut (i was out this time so i didn't use any- normally i do though!)
(Instructions from my cook book)
1. In a medium bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.
2. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in cereal, coconut, rasins, choclate,etc (you can add nuts if you want to! Sometimes i crush almonds and put them in mine when i have them!!)
3. Drop dough by a rounded teaspoon 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven about 8 minute or until edges are golden brown.
4. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer the cookies to wire rack; cool. Makes about 54 cookies.
- ok just a side note, the instructions call for an ungreased sheet- but i have to grease mine because they're cheap dollar store sheets and they stick aweful. This time i'm not sure what went wrong though as i always grease them (i spray the non stick spray on wax paper and then wipe it on the sheets evenly) I dunno! I think i'm going to buy one of those Silpmats! You might want to line yours with a liner or parchament paper Helen- i should have!
I am STILL scraping the cookies out of the big rectangle pans and one of the round ones.....I did get some of it out of the other round one though- it's now soaking in sudsy water
