Today is the last day of cookie week and we are ending with one of my favorite cookies while growing up, Ranger Cookies. If you have never had a ranger cookie before, you must try one! This cookie includes oats, coconut, and the best part – rice krispies. They give this cookie little pockets of crunch. I do think they are best if you eat them no later than the day after you make them.
