About this recipe

This Ranger Cookie recipe is from my mom, and I have fond memories of having these cookies while growing up. The mixture of oats, coconut and corn flakes makes these cookies chewy with that perfect little bit of crunch.


Ranger cookies are a real crowd pleaser. Make them for your next pot-luck, family dinner or social gathering. Everyone will be asking for the recipe
