1 cup margarine (softened) [+]
1 cup vegetable oil [+]
1 cup white sugar [+]
1 cup brown sugar (packed) [+]
1 egg [+]
3 cups flour [+]
1 teaspoon salt [+]
1 teaspoon cream of tartar [+]
1 teaspoon baking soda [+]
1 teaspoon maple extract [+]
1 cup oats [+]
1 cup Rice Krispies [+]
1 cup coconut [+]
1 cup chopped nuts [+]


1. In a mixer, cream together the margarine, oil, white sugar, brown sugar, and egg.

2. Sift together the flour, salt, cream of tartar, and baking soda and add to the mixing bowl.  Mix on medium until well combined.

3. Add the maple extract, oats, Rice Krispies, coconut, and nuts and mix until all ingredients are well combined.  Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight or at least 3 hours.

4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Roll dough into 2-inch balls and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper.  Make sure you do not crowd the cookies, leave plenty of room for them to spread!

5. Dip the bottom of a small glass in sugar and gently press each cookie, flattening just slightly. Re-dip the cup in sugar after each cookie.

6. Bake for 10 minutes.  Let cookies cool on baking sheets for a couple of minutes and then transfer to cooling racks. 

These cookies turn out lacy and crispy, yet are still soft and delicious. The maple gives a welcome change from the standard vanilla flavor and fills the house with a wonderful syrupy smell.
