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.
- 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
Mix all ingredients together.
Chill dough for 1 hour.
Roll dough into a ball (desired size of cookie).
Flatten with the bottom of a glass dipped in granulated sugar.
Sprinkle cookies with desired color of sugar depending on season.
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.
