Grandma's "100" Cookies

For a crispy cookie that is AMAZING dipped in milk, you have to give these a try. I'm guessing they got their name because they are so good, they would score a 100 in any contest. Full of crisp rice cereal, coconut, and oats, these thin cookies will become a fast favorite.


Grandma's "100" Cookies

Makes 4 dozen

1 cup sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup crisp puffed rice cereal

1 cup flaked coconut

1 cup quick oats

3/4 teaspoon salt

3 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

In a large bowl, mix sugar, brown sugar, butter, oil, egg, vanilla, rice cereal, coconut, and oats. Sift together salt, flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Add to the sugar mixture and mix well. Drop by tablespoons onto greased cookie sheets and bake at 350° F for 10-12 minutes.


When I baked the first batch, I wondered if I didn't quite get enough flour because they went so flat and thin, so I added some to the second batch. They weren't as flat, but didn't seem right, so I'm assuming the first round was correct. My son loved them because they remind him of Tate's cookies.

The recipe is an interesting one with "1 cup" or "1 teaspoon" of most ingredients. Kind of curious, right? Maybe that has something to do with the name? When you put in a cup of oil, you start to wonder if these cookies will work, but they do!

Because of their crispy nature, they are the perfect milk cookie! So, so good dipped in milk. I bet they would be delicious sandwiched with vanilla ice cream too. Too bad I just thought of that, because we've already eaten them all!
