Yield 8 dozen
These crispy oatmeal cookies may keep everyone guessing about the ingredients. The crispiness comes from toasted rice cereal instead of nuts and the sweetness comes from brown sugar and raisins.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups oven-toasted rice cereal
  • 2 cups regular oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup raisins

How to Make It

  1. Cream shortening in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, beating well.

  2. Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt in a medium mixing bowl; add to creamed mixture, stirring well. Stir in remaining ingredients; mix well.

  3. Shape into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool on wire racks.
