Parking Lot Cookies

So I’m not sure where the name came from or even where the recipe came from, but these cookies are DELICIOUS!  They are quick and easy and can be made mostly from what you have in your pantry.  I made them because my husband has been on a Rice Krispie Treat kick and after making 4 batches of them in a week and a half, I needed something else to do with the Rice Krispies! 


-1 c shortening

-1 c white sugar

-1 c brown sugar

-2 eggs, beaten

-1 tsp vanilla

-2 c flour

-1 tsp baking soda

-1/2 tsp baking powder

-2 c oatmeal

-2 c Rice Krispies

-1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix both sugars well, removing all lumps.  Add shortening, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and beaten eggs.  Mix well.  Mix in flour.  Mix in chocolate chips.  Mix in oatmeal (starting to get thick – may want to start mixing it by hand).  Mix in Rice Krispies.  Roll up into teaspoon sized balls and mash with fork.  Place on bottom rack in oven and bake about 8 minutes or until bottoms of cookies start to brown.  Move to top rack for another 3 minutes or until lightly brown.  Cool.
