Do you like to eat cooky* dough?

I made these while listening to Julie & Julia's soundtrack (click here).
I was going to take them over to ME & Charlie's house on Friday, but I am going to make something else instead.

The raw dough was SO delicious...I confess I ate not some, but A LOT of dough.
But I did bake 4 pans of these cookies, and I discovered that I accidentally doubled the baking soda (I could not taste it while the dough was un-cooked), and the
crisp rice cereal went strangely tough/chewy. =P

So, I would say if your family (of friends) love to eat raw cooky* dough, you should make this for them.


  • 1/2 cup butter & coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup Sucanat (or packed brown sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup lightly toasted flaked coconut


  1. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour/salt/baking soda; add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in cereal and coconut.
  2. (If you are going to bake them: Roll into balls (I just used the med. cookie dropper; place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned and set. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks.)

~Happy Eating!


At Goodwill today, I found this HUGE old dish towel for a dollar!
(I put the light bulb in so you can see how big the rooster is.)
He is hand embroidered & appliqued.


*Cooky is the correct non-plural spelling.
Cookie is the plural spelling.

I am sorry, but I don't remember what the year was, but somewhere around 100 years ago, some Cooky company decided that they would spell it with an "ie" all the time.

But then like saying Kleenex instead of tissue, almost everyone spells cooky with an "ie", and thinks that you are crazy for spelling it with a "y".
(this is a pet peeve of mine)

That is so pretty! Too pretty to use for dishes. In your answer to vintage patterns the instruction sheeet sthat come with them are really good. The patterns don't have markings on them prior to 1950 but once you learn what the dots are they are just the same.
