Everyday Cookies

I was proud of the kids.  They made 7 dozen cookies.  They are done and to the church.  The Every Day Cookies were a big hit.  I stumbled up them.  I was cleaning the church up after co-op and our scrapbookers came in.  They have the church reserved right after the co-op.

Since they are long time church members,  I asked them about the Kairos cookies.  Next thing you know, I have a cookie in my hand and instructions to give them a call if I can’t find the recipe on-line.  With that type of recommendation, I thought what the heck.

We finished them up this morning.  I must say they were good.  Those of us still eating sweets gave them two thumbs up.  On a side note, I will be glad when Lent is over and we are all eating the same thing again!  These remind me of a butter cookie.  My kids thought I put pecans in them.  I think the coconut gave them a slightly nutty flavor.  If you make them, you have to budget in the chilling time.   You put the dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour.  I think it just makes them easier to shape.

I picked this recipe from food.com  I loved the back story on it.  Go to the website and check it out.

Here’s the recipe.

Mrs. Carlson’s Everyday Cookies

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Rice Krispies
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 ½ cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. Chill dough for 1 hour.
  3. Roll dough into a ball (desired size of cookie).
  4. Flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in granulated sugar.
  5. Sprinkle cookies with desired color of sugar depending on season.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

We made 35 – 3 ” cookies.

The kids were delighted. The Kairos cookies have to be packed in groups of 12. That meant they had 11 cookies left to eat. I definitely think this is a missions project they can get behind.
