2 tsp Real 100% Vanilla Extract
4 cups All-Purpose Flour

Cooking Instructions

Note: This recipe makes and extra large batch which is easily shared. For single batch, cut ingredients to 1/4 quantity.

Using a hand-held mixer, cream together shortening, butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until the mixture is light and smooth.

In a separate bowl (extra large plastic tub works great) sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

Stir in cereal, oats, and coconut into the flour mixture until evenly distributed.

Use a spatula to scrape wet mixture onto dry ingredients and begin to fold together. The batter will begin to get dry and almost crumbly. Do not attempt to use an electric mixer at this point. Mix ingredients with your bare hands to incorporate, tossing the dough around with your fingers. This is not typical cookie "dough" that will stick together in a ball.

After ingredients are well blended, use a teaspoon or melon scoop to gather heaping teaspoons of crumbly batter into the palm of your hand and squeeze into a loosely formed ball. Place cookie balls onto an un-greased cookie sheet, about 15 per standard sized pan. The cookies will not spread out too much.

Bake in a preheated, 350 degree oven for about 11-12 minutes. Watch the cookies closely to get the timing down and pull each batch out when they just start to appear "dry" on the top and slightly golden around the edges.

Let the tray of baked cookies sit on the stovetop for several minutes to firm up before removing them to a wire rack for complete cooling.

Refrigerate unused dough between batches.
