Irresistible Cookies

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes.  I made them for end of the year treats for some of Marlie's teachers and then made more for us because I find them so hard to resist!  Bryan's sister said the flavor reminded her of Samoas a little bit, so that may be why I'm such a fan of them!    

Irresistible Cookies

Makes 4 1/2 dozen
Prep 15 minutes
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
1 cup sweetened flake coconut
1 bag (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Place parchment paper on baking sheet and set aside.

In small bowl, blend flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt with a whisk; set aside.

In large bowl, beat shortening and both sugars on medium-high speed about 3 minutes or until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Beat in vanilla.

On low speed, gradually add flour mixture and beat until just combined.  Stir in oats, Rice Krispies, coconut and chocolate chips.

Form balls with 2 tablespoons of dough and place 2 inches apart on prepared sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Cool on sheets for 5 minutes then transfer to cooling rack to cool completely.
