Killer Cookies

We had a group of friends over for a Memorial Day party. My friend Laura brought these cookies. They are sooooo good!

Killer Cookies

1½ cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup sweetened flake coconut
1 bag (6oz) MSPI-friendly semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350. Place parchment paper on four baking sheets and set aside.

In small mixing bowl, blend flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt with a whisk; set aside.

In large bowl, beat shortening and both sugars on medium-high speed about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

On low speed, gradually add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in oats, Rice Krispies, coconut and chocolate chips.

Form balls with two tablespoons of dough and place two inches apart on prepared sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool on sheets for five minutes then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
