Recipe: Ranger Cookies

Ranger Cookies

Ranger Cookies are a family favorite.  I don’t know for sure where they get their name, but I know that just about everyone in my family makes a variation of these cookies.

I got this version from my mom, who is an amazing cook.  These are so yummy, I included them in the 2008  holiday candy parcels I sent to my friends!

  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 c. shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbs. vanilla
  • 2 c. flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 c. oatmeal
  • 2 c. Cornflakes
  • 2 c. pecans

Preheat oven to at 350°.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Cream together sugars and shortening.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add vanilla.  In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and baking soda.  Add to creamed mixture.  Stir in oatmeal, cornflakes and pecans.

The dough will be very stiff.    Use a cookie scoop and space cookies 2″ apart on prepared sheet.
