Rice Krispie Cookies - a blast from my childhood!

One bite of this cookie, and your mouth just feels so happy.  There is just something so comforting about this cookie!  I haven't had these since I was a child, so you can understand how nostalgic they were for me!  They still taste delicious.....just the way I remember them.  Here is all there is to them:

1 cup of shortening or butter
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups of flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup Quick Cook rolled oats
2 cups Rice Krispies cereal

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Begin by creaming the butter and sugar.  Once it is nice and fluffy, add the vanilla and eggs.  In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda, powder and salt and incorporate that.  Remove from the blender, and with a spoon,  add the oats and Rice Krispies and gently mix.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Using a tablespoon, make a ball of cookie dough and slightly flatten on the cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 minutes, or until the cookies are nice and golden brown.  About 3/4 of the way through the cooking time, I like to rotate the cookie sheet so that they cook evenly.

 All that is left to do is eat them!  Delish....
