Wasatch Mountain Ranger Cookies

"Using paper CD holders is a great way to individually package Large Cookies"

from A Taste Of Salt Lake CookBook
1 c. butter, softened ( I use ½ butter and ½ shortening)
1 c. sugar
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 ¾ c . all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
2 c. Rice Krispies or corn flakes
2 c. regular oats, uncooked

Options:( I just used coconut in the cookies pictured above)
1 c. chopped pecans, walnuts or peanuts(unsalted and roasted)
1 (6 oz.) pkg. butterscotch morsels, chocolate chips or peanut butter chips
1 c. flaked coconut
3/4 c. raisins

Preheat oven to 350*

Cream butter; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add eggs,and vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour and next 3 ingredients. Fold in oats, cereal, add any of the options or combination of options and fold into the dough. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until browned
