Ranger Cookies

{Written by: The Mrs.}

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving.
I’m down in Southern Cali again for the holiday and ensuing family reunion. My job for this year is family cookie baker.  I’ve been making a different batch of cookies everyday for a week or so now and I was trying to decide which cookies to make when I came across this recipe my mother had given to me. This cookie has everything in it and I’m pretty sure it can be considered breakfast food since it has two different kinds of cereal (wink, wink). The favor of this cookie is kind of a “payday” bar.
