Good Fences and Good Cookies

Hi,  Today I will be linking up for Theresa's GOOD FENCES post and also something new that I just joined.  FILL THE COOKIE JAR.

Please note my Good Fences photo's will follow right after the cookies.

This months cookie theme for Fill The Cookie Jar is:  Dad's Favorites.
Now I don't really know if these were my dad's favorite cookies or not.  My dad had a "sweet tooth" for just about any kind of cookie, cake, pie, dessert...well you get the picture.  I bet if he was around today he's say his signature phrase:  "There's only one thing wrong with these cookies.  There's not enough of them!."

However in the case of these cookies there are plenty of them to be found with this recipe.  It makes 6 dozed cookies so be prepared for a full cookie jar for sure if you bake these.

Crisp 'N Crunchy Cookies.


 Ingredients:
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 Cup butter or margarine, softened.
1 Cup Cooking Oil
1 tsp. Vanilla
1 Egg
3 1/2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Cup Rolled Oats (I used the Quick 1 Minute oats)
1 Cup Flaked Coconut
1 Cup Crisp Rice Cereal (which I accidentally left out in the one's I baked today and just now realized but they turned out okay anyway.)
1/2 Cup Chopped Nuts (I used chopped pecans)

Oven Temp: 350F
In large bowl, combine the first 8 Ingredients.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed until smooth.  Add flours; beat 1 minute at low speed.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets; flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.  Bake 10 to 14 minutes or until light golden brown.  Yields, 72-84 cookies.
These are great to dip in milk for those of you who like to dunk your cookies.



Join in the fun by checking out the other participants.

So let's join Theresa for GOOD FENCES now.
 This is the fence that borders the outside area of the local dog park.  I just love all the fun colorful dog cutouts.

 
 
 
Notice the little sign to the left of the dog:

This one was the closest to our little Pug, Cricket who loves to go to the dog park but wasn't with me this day as I took these photos right after my dental appointment last week.  The dog park is located near my dentist so I took the camera along to get these shots.







That's it for today.  I hope to get around to your blogs but since I've been sick this week I've fallen a little behind.  I will do my best to catch up over the weekend.

  2. Oh, Ida! I'm so sorry you didn't feel well this week! So I prayed for you.
    I like the second to last dog with the big ears up straight, A Bassett Hound, maybe?
    I can't have wheat, but those cookies sound fab. I do make "cookies" out of bananas, oats and nuts. Plus I add other stuff if I have it. They are a pretty good substitute, but they are not a nice, warm Christmas cookie. Oh well...

  3. Those cookies look so good. I like your cookie jar! I wasn't sure about those doggie decorated fences but since it's for a dog park, they make sense!

  4. The cookies Look delicious - I'm going to have to copy down your recipe. Very nice food photography on your part. That's one subject I need much work on.

    I love the dog park fence and cut outs. No mistaking who it's for! :D

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

  20. Hi Ida! Oh, what a COOL fence! That is probably the most unique chain link I have ever seen! I love those colorful pups! You have a beautiful blog and I decided to follow you! Your header is just gorgeous. Is that a double clematis in the photo? It looks very similar to one I have that color but mine is not double. I don't think I have ever seen one like that! Thanks for visiting me through Good Fences!

  22. Hi Ida. The dog park fence is delightful...what a great idea ...glad you shared it. Ignoring the cookies because we can't do that anymore...stinks getting old sometimes;((. (It could be worse....

    We are in Veneta ..lots of wind on the Lake, so it's pretty cool in the mornings and evenings. Mid day has been in the mid 70s at the warmest. We are on a road trip out of state at the moment though.

I could walk forever here and never find such great photo ops. Pretty scenery, but... maybe I'm not looking hard enough. Hmmm...
