As per Request: Krispy Cookies

I made Krispy Cookies to take up to Grandview  to snack on and received a request for the recipe.
As one who LOVES requests, it's my pleasure to  oblige.

Krispy Cookies
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup vegetable/canola oil (Yes...BOTH butter and oil)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt (if using nuts that are salted, you can decrease)
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg

Mix all the above ingredients together.  Beat til smooth.  Then add:
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Beat 1 minute.  Add:
1 cup oatmeal (I use quick cooking)
1 cup rice krispies
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts (my personal favorite is macadamia nuts, but I've made this with pecans before and they're good as well)

Put 1/4 cup sugar on a shallow plate.

Using roll ~2Tbs dough into a ball, put on a cookie sheet.  Using the bottom of a glass, flatten cookie, then dip the bottom of the glass in the sugar and transfer it to the cookie (you only have to do this once, for the first cookie to be able to make the sugar stick to the glass, then the cookie, after the first cookie, you can then go back to the sugar and flatten only once).
Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 10-14 min (I found 12-13 min to be pretty close).  They'll start to turn a very light golden at the edges, but the center will still be a little soft.  Let cool about 5 min on the tray then transfer to a cookie rack.

These are a really good light krispy AND chewy cookie.  Enjoy!
