Vintage Recipes Notes:
First, cream the sugars and margarine/butter; then blend in the egg, oil, and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt, and cream of tartar and mix well; slowly fold into the wet mixture and mix until well incorporated. Combine the coconut, Rice Krispies, and quick oats, and slowly add to the mixture and mix well.

After posting this recipe on FaceBook and getting several questions, I just had to try these cookies. I can now verify that yes, one egg can bind all of these ingredients, and yes, they are rather tasty!
I followed the recipe exactly, other than using butter rather than margarine. At first, I used a "level" one teaspoon measurement as I was worried about the dough making 100 cookies; later on in baking, I started using a "more full" teaspoon for the cookies. Yes, the recipe makes 100 medium-sized cookies (102 in my batch); these cookies were approximately silver-dollar in size. The cookies do not spread much when baking, so the unbaked shape of the cookie dough is almost the same as the baked cookie.
Here is a picture of the cookie dough:
These cookies taste much like a sugar cookie, with a hint of coconut - along with a little crunch provided by the Rice Krispies. The texture of the entire cookie reminded me of a sausage ball. I was worried about the coconut in the recipe as I am not a big fan of coconut, but the taste was mild enough that it was not overpowering. With this in mind, I think the next time that I make these cookies; I may try substituting raisins for the coconut - just to see how they turn out.
Here is an image of the 102 cookies:
So if you are looking for a crunchy sugar cookie with a little crunch, give these a try!
