Good Cookies–Vintage Recipe

Yes, that’s their name... Good Cookies. They are a very thin, crispy cookie.
This vintage recipe came from our Aunt Raisie (short for Doraise).
  See how thin the cookie is? You can see right through it.

My sister, Carol, is the one who makes these cookies and her kids and grandkids.

I LOVED MY Aunt Raisie – She came to visit and would get up by 5:00am to begin cooking.
She made all sorts of wonderful things and the smells of her cooking were always sure to get me out
of bed early.
I remember fried dough, chicken chop Suey, pancakes and especially these cookies.                  

 
Cream:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter or margarine (softened)
 
Add:
2 well beaten eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
 
Put together and add to creamed mixture:
2 cups flour                         
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
 
Stir in:
2 cups Special K cereal
1 cup coconut flakes
 

Form into balls. Flatten with the palm of your hand – they are best if you get them really flat so they will be crispy.
In between batches, leave the cookie dough in the refrigerator which helps them not to stick to your hand.
Bake approx. 8 min. at 350 degrees.
This makes quite a few cookies. Aunt Raisie made them big and crispy!

I loved them!
 
This is Tina’s hand, Carol’s granddaughter. She uses the side of her hand, not the palm like Aunt Raisie did to flatten out the dough.
