Cracker Jack Cookies Recipe - (Cookies)


1 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter (or margarine)
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup coconut
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups quick oats
2 cups Rice Krispies


Mix all the ingredients with an electric mixer in order except the Rice Krispies. Fold in the Rice Krispies with your hand. Drop rounded teaspoons of mixture about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. It may take more than one baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Kids really like these cookies.

My Thoughts On Cracker Jack Cookies:

Cracker Jacks are a big part of my childhood memories. My mother would bring me Cracker Jacks as a kid. I was always excited to get them. I was especially excited about finding the small prize in the box. Sometimes it was a lick-and-stick tattoo and other times it was a small magnifying glass. These cookies do not necessarily taste like Cracker Jacks but they will be well-liked by children. It is difficult for a child to not like any cookie. If you are a teacher these cookies will be a great treat for the kids in your class.

More Information On Cracker Jack Cookies:

It is uncertain where and when Cracker Jack cookies originated but it is rumored that the cookie dates to the 1930's. The Cracker Jack candy does have an interesting history though. The popcorn candy treat was invented by a German immigrant in 1893. It was not named Cracker Jack at first. You can read more on Cracker Jacks by visiting ThoughtCo and reading the article called Who Invented Cracker Jack, the Classic Popcorn Snack.

Some Questions For You:

Have you baked Cracker Jack cookies before? Have you tried these delicious cookies? If you work around children or have children in your family, these cookies will make you an instant celebrity. Go ahead and put some smiles on a child's face by baking these Cracker Jack Cookies. Did you see my last recipe? If you missed the recipe I will share it here. It is called Apricot Crescents Recipe and you might like it too.

My Thoughts For Today:


We have a mulberry tree in our yard and every year the tree produces nice fruit. We are always in competition with birds and squirrels to collect the berries the tree gives. The tree was planted many years ago before we bought our home. I enjoy the taste of these berries. If they are picked when they are ripe they have a sweet taste. The berries are green at first, then red, and finally dark purple or black when fully ripe. I was thinking to see if I could successfully save the seeds from these berries and try to start a few more trees to plant on the property. One tree produces a lot of berries but several more trees would produce many more to bake with.

I will share more about my progress on this project in the future. Keep your fingers crossed that I can get the seeds to sprout. I appreciate you visiting today and I would like to know your thoughts on the Cracker Jack Cookies recipe.

Keep on cooking!

Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe - (Cookies)

Ingredients: (Cookie)

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
1 egg
1 cup carrots, cooked and mashed
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions: (Cookie)

Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, butter, egg, and carrots, mixing well. Stir the dry mixture into the sugar mixture. Add vanilla. Stir in nuts. Drop a well-rounded teaspoon about 2 inches apart on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes or until no imprint remains when touched lightly with a fingertip. Let the cookies cool. You don't want to overbake this soft cookie.

Ingredients: (Frosting)

3 cups powdered sugar
Grated rind of 1 orange
3-4 tablespoons orange juice

Directions: (Frosting)

Combine all the icing ingredients and mix them well. Frost the cookies with icing, and sprinkle the chopped pecans on the icing.

Thoughts On Carrot Cake Cookies:

I really enjoy carrot cake but I also love cookies and this carrot cake cookie recipe is the best of both. This cookie reminds me of carrot cake and that is why I titled it Carrot Cake Cookies. Warm cookies right out of the oven are the best. When you make this recipe it is difficult to have them warm because of the icing that is supposed to go on the cookie after it is cooled. If you know your microwave well you can warm the cookies just enough not to melt the icing but also make the cookies warm. If you don't want to do that you can just enjoy the cookies at room temperature. They will be good no matter what.

More Information On Carrot Cake Cookies:

National Carrot Cake Day is February 3rd. You can learn more interesting facts about carrot cake by visiting Mark this date on your calendar.

According to Melissa K. Norris, the Carrot Cookie originated during World War II and is considered a vintage recipe. The carrot cookie revived the carrot cake popularity in America.

Some Questions For You:

Do you prefer a carrot cake or a carrot cookie? Have you baked either one of these tasty treats? Did you see my last recipe? If you missed it, it is called White Texas Sheet Cake Easy Recipe and it is a popular dessert in Texas.

My Thoughts For The Day:

A curious food gift.

I was given this little cast iron skillet as a gift. All I need is 8 ounces of softened cream cheese and it makes about 2 skillets. I love food gifts like this. It's a cooking project that can be enjoyed. The directions say to clean the skillet and oil it like any other skillet. I don't know what I could do with a little skillet. Do you have any ideas? I was thinking I could use it to cook a single egg.

What is the most interesting food gift you have received? I once received a beer bread kit in a beer bottle with the recipe printed on the back. All I needed to do was add 1 beer, mix, and bake in the oven.

Keep on cooking!

A Question or Two For You:

Do you like applesauce or apple sauce cookies? Have you ever made these cookies? If you have had any experience with these cookies I would love to hear your story. Please share with me in the comments below. Also, did you miss my last easy recipe? If you did miss my last recipe, I would like to share it with you here. The recipe is called Italian Meatballs Easy Recipe. Take a peek at it!

Personal Thoughts For Today:

In previous posts I have shared I wanted to get a wood pellet stove. I finally got over to the Lowe's store and bought one. It is a Master Forge wood pellet stove.

I picked up my wood pellet stove with my truck.

I had to wait a few days before picking it up at the store. I heat with propane but I wanted to add a wood pellet stove to not only have more of an option for heating my home but it is also a beginning towards being more independent and self-sufficient. Eventually, it would be ideal to produce power as well with solar panels and wind turbines. 

In the middle of the house. It is the dining room area.

My stepdad owns ramps for his truck and brought them to me. We put the ramps on the tailgate and slid the stove down the ramp to the ground. Then we used a dolly to wheel it into the house. The picture above is basically where I want to place the stove in my home. The next step is to measure how much pipe I need for installation. I have to get on top of the roof and measure the amount of pipe I need to run down to the stove for exhaust. I have a chimney flu built into the home so I will run pip down the flu instead of using the flu itself.

I am thinking I would like to purchase a plate for the stove to sit on and possibly a plate to go on the wall behind the stove as well. If I don't use a plate for the wall I may use some kind of decorative wall board that looks like bricks. It is just an idea. I also would like to use black pipe for inside the house. The pipe going up the flu won't be seen so it will be the cheapest and probably just regular silver metal.

This stove heats 2,000-3,000 square feet and my house is not as much as that so this stove should heat the house very well. I can use the central air unit to circulate the warm air throughout the house. The intake for the central air is in the ceiling of the dining room where the heat from the stove will go to. I think it will work out well and I will keep you updated on the progress and experience.
