Parking Lot Cookies

Our Customer Relations Committee at work is having a Cookie Fest/Bake Sale. I love having a reason to bake so I offered to make a recipe to donate. I decided to pick a recipe from the links below that are being circulated around via e-mail and being posted to blogs. Not sure why this cookie is called 'Parking Lot Cookie' though. It's a very crisp cookie, probably from the oatmeal and Rice Krispies.
1 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups flour
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup pecans (I toasted mine)
1 cup chocolate chips
Mix shortening with sugars until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix all the dry ingredients together and toss them into the wet mixture. Drop by scoops or tablespoon onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes until light brown. Makes 4 dozen cookies.

Maybe they were named because they were sold in a parking lot? haha

Sure, I'd love to 'adopt' some of your cookbooks. I'm not sure if I have any to send you back since 3/4 of my collection are at home (I live on campus at school). If you don't mind sending me some without getting anything back (you will, just not right away lol), send me an email at :)
