Ranger Cookies


Ranger Cookies have been around since at least the 1960s and are the cousin cookie of the Cowboy Cookie with its oats, chocolate chips, and pecans. Ranger Cookies, on the other hand, boast rolled oats, chocolate chips, shredded coconut and Rice Krispies or you can substitute crushed corn flakes in lieu of the Rice Krispies. There was never a more satisfying dynamic cookie full of texture and flavors.
