Buffalo Chip Cookies

  • Yield 4 dozens


I received this recipe for buffalo chip cookies from my 78-year old mother. These cookies are her favorite ones to make.


1 cup margarine or butter
1 cup solid shortening
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups quick oats (uncooked)
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
2 cups Rice Krispies
6 ounces chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream margarine and shortening. Add sugars, eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in oats, flour, baking soda and baking powder. When well blended, stir in coconut, pecans, Rice Krispies and chocolate chips. When batter is thoroughly mixed, measure 1/4 cup batter for each cookie on a large ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges are golden. For a crispier cookie, bake 12 to 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool slightly on baking sheet before removing.
