Everything but the Kitchen Sink.. Chocolate Chip Cookies

I got this recipe over 10 years ago out of the newspaper. I was reading the food sections and in the corner in a small 2X3 inch box was this recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I thought it looked interesting and clipped it out. It has now become one of my families favorite cookies.

1 c. butter or margarine
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2c. granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c. Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 c. chocolate chips
1 c. rice krispies
1 c. flaked coconut
1 c. uncooked quick oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

In mixer or large bowl, add butter , brown sugar and

granulated sugar. Beat until light and fluffy about 3 minutes.

Beat in eggs and

vanilla, scraping side occasionally. In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Beat in flour mixture until blended.

Stir in coconut


Rice Krispies

and Chocolate Chips

Drop by rounded tablespoons on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden and edges are crisp.

Remove from baking sheet to wire rack to cool. Although the baked cookies are really good with a nice glass of milk, I love to eat just the batter. I put just a little bit in a container in the fridge for a midnight snack. MMMMMM... the calories....

I am now the proud parent of an HP Pavilion Computer and
an HP Home Server, I just couldn't be happier.
I think Jim is more excited about getting these then when we actually brought our own kids home, and he is actually upset that I didn't take pictures of our new babies to put on my blog. Men and gadgets they find them so much more exciting then we do.
