Ranger Cookies

Okay, so I always think my daddy will love me more if I make him cookies...and I may just be right! Anyway, these are my favorite grown-up cookie, and I have tweaked the recipe recently to make it super-delicious.
Ranger Cookies
1 c. margarine or butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon (optional)
1/4 t. nutmeg (opt.)
2 c. flour
1 c. coconut
2 c. corn flakes
2 c. bran flakes
2 c. oatmeal
2 c. chocolate chips (opt.)
1 c. raisins or craisins (opt.)

Preheat oven to 350. Cream margarine and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Mix together baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour. Gradually add to creamed mixture until fully incorporated. With mixer on low-med slowly add oatmeal and bran and corn flakes. Mix fully. Stir in coconut, chocolate chips, and raisins/craisins. Scoop by heaping tablespoonful unto greased cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes (first batch takes about 1 minute longer). Cool on tray 1-2 minutes. Makes 3 dozen or A FREAKING TON of cookies!!!!

Cookie combos (add-ins):
White chocolate chip and craisin
Raisin Chocolate Chip
Mega Chip (any combo of chips...butterscotch, white/vanilla, semi-sweet, and milk chocolate....tasty!)
