"These are the best cookies you have ever eaten!"

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup Rice Krispies
1 cup quick oats, uncooked
1/2 cup coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix sugars, oil, egg and butter until evenly blended.
  3. Stir in baking soda, salt and flour. Mix well.
  4. Add vanilla, Rice Krispies, coconut and oats. Stir again, until dough is even.
  5. Drop by teaspoon on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges are golden.

Tips From Our Test Kitchen: This chewy cookie can be baked longer if a crispier texture is desired. A cup of chopped nuts or chocolate chips can be added to suit your taste.
