Rice Krispy Cookies

From a Taste of Oregon, Junior League of Eugene
First Published October 1980 and this particular edition that I picked up is the 15th printing of May 1998. Posted by Hello

1 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
3/4 cup Rice Krispies

Beat the butter, sugar, and egg yolks until creamy. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking poweder, then add to butter mixture along with the vanilla. Blend in oatmeal and Rice Krispies. Form cookie dough into 1-inch balls and flatten on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees until they start to borwn, about 10 minutes.

Yield: 3 dozen

I have not made these yet, but they fascinated me for some reason. Could it be the Rice Krispie part? I recently picked up this book at my favorite used book store in Santa Barbara. I figured I couldn't go wrong, as it is a Junior League book, it has sold over 300,000 copies AND was the winner of both the Walter S. McIlhenny Hall of Fame and the Southern Living Hall of Fame awards. From what I understand, it is one of the nation's top best selling Junior League cookbooks.

I saw your site from Shakespeare's Sis. Glad I stopped by. My favorite kind of site! I'm adding this to my "Food for Eating" (as opposed to thought) blogroll.
