Dishpan Cookies...

Dishpan Cookies

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 cup sugar

1 cup cooking oil

2 eggs

2 cups self-rising flour

1 cup oats

1 cup dry cereal (your choice-cornflakes, bran flakes, raisin bran, etc.)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I have also used orange extract with very good results)

a slight handful chopped pecans or other nuts of your choice

a slight handful of chocolate chips, or butterscotch, or peanut butter, or all

Mix sugar, oil and eggs well. Add all other ingredients, mix well. Drop a teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. (if it would make you feel more comfortable, spray slightly with a cooking spray) This is where I made some slight adjustments to this recipe-It said to bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes, and I found they just were not done enough to suit me. so I raised the temperature to 400 degrees, and baked for at least 10 minutes. They are done when the edges start to turn brown, no longer or they will be too brittle.

Taken from a local church cookbook—Or rather, “tweaked” from a local church cookbook recipe….LOL
