This a an easy and tasty drop cookie that my sister found in an old cookbook at our parent's house.
These cookies are quite tasty and easy to make. They are called Cracker Jack, but not in the style of the boxed treat, but in the sense that Cracker Jack meant "Great!" in the 1930's. Cracker Jack Cookies INGREDIENTS: INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cream together sugar and butter. 2. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix well. 3. Measure flour; sift in soda and baking powder. Beat into creamed mixture. Let stand few minutes. 4. Add coconut, oatmeal and Rice Krispies in that order. 5. Drop on pan. Bake about 10 minutes, 350-degrees. The ingredients are available at Byerly's.

A generous donation from Cub Foods allowed Noble Elementary School's entire 2nd grade class to make gingerbread men.
Talk to most people during the holiday season, and chances are, there are two things you'll find in their homes: presents and Christmas cookies. Just before students at Noble Elementary School left for their winter break on Dec. 17, the entire 2nd grade class took part in several holiday activities, which included making gingerbread men. Chad Evenson, manager of the Cub Foods on 36th Ave and Hwy 100 in Crystal, made a generous donation of cookies and sprinkles to the school so the 2nd graders could participate in the activity. Below are a few pictures from their day.
