Steph's Ranger Cookies

I keep telling people I'll get them my yummy cookie recipe.
Well here it is!!

Ranger Cookies
Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens

They said the dough yields 48 cookies; I got exactly 36.

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder *******
1/4 teaspoon baking soda *******
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour ( half flour and half flax seed or wheat germ or both)
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup mixed dried fruit (I don't do this)

In a medium mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer for 30 seconds. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, and baking soda; beat until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in oats, coconut, and fruit.

Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Unless you just want to eat it, then stick the rest in the fridge. :-)

Bake in a 375°F oven about 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Transfer to a wire rack; cool.

***** I read in one recipe if you are using self rising flour to nix any baking powder and or soda. I never use these in my recipes when using self rising flour now.

It breaks my heart

Keith and I watched The Boy in the Striped Pajamas last week.
It was an incredible story of one family during WWII told through the eyes of
the 9 year old son.
I know the holocaust was terrible. I have done papers on it in high school,
I've read books about it and have seen movies. None of that comes even close to how this movie touched my heart. And then broke it into a million pieces.
(There wasn't anything gross to watch. It was all implied. )
What tears me up is that people actually felt that another human being was worth
so little, or nothing at all. This continues to happen even now.
Hello Human Race!!!
What happened to evolution? Aren't we supposed to be changing for the better?
God's heart must be breaking a zillion times more than mine. Look at what's happened to His children. We have let Satan in to do his darnedest and it seems like
there is no willingness to kick him out!

Dear Jesus,
I pray for a revival in the hearts of mankind.
Let all of us seek Your love and guidance.
Help us to kick the devil out so there is only room for You
to fill us to overflowing.
