Ranger Cookies

I found the recipe for Ranger Cookies when I was looking for a high-energy treat that my husband could bring along with him when he goes hunting this weekend. Packed with coconut, raisins, and rolled oats, Ranger Cookies are an amped-up version of oatmeal raisin which should help keep the munchies at bay.

Ranger Cookies
from the Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook

makes about 48 cookies

1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. baking soda
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. quick-cooking rolled oats
1 c. coconut
1 c. raisins, dried cherries, dried cranberries, or mixed dried fruit bits

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour. Stir in rolled oats, coconut, and raisins.

2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are light brown and centers are set. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack and let cool.
