Holiday Goodies from Charlain Harris forum recipes: Sookie's Cereal Cookies

Sookie's Cereal Cookies

Cream together: 1 stick softened butter
1/2 cup butter flavor crisco shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
Stir in: 2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
Fold in: 2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal(not quick cook)
2 cups rice crispies

Batter will be very stiff, but be sure to mix well.
You can add raisins, nuts, or dried fruits, but not chocolate(it doesn't hold up well). My favorite add ins are 1 cup chopped dried cherries and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.

Drop by generous tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Wait 2 minutes after removing from oven before taking cookies off baking sheets. Cool on parchment paper on flat surface.
