Photo of the day: Ranger Cookies by Michelle Jenkins of the Daily Waffle

If you try any of the recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen, we'd love to see the results so we can showcase them on our blog and occasionally in print. This image comes to us from Michelle Jenkins, who runs the food site the Daily Waffle. (Don't you just want to reach out and grab one?)

She tried one of our vintage recipes for Ranger Cookies, a.k.a. Flying Saucer Cookies, which call for cornflakes, walnuts and cocount, based on a 1952 recipe served by the Los Angeles Unified School District. You can read more about her excursion with the recipe here.

We liked this photo so much we used it on E2 of today's Food section.

I actually remember these flying saucer cookies from the elementary school I went to years and years and years ago called Toluca Lake Elementary School (in North Hollywood). They were chewy, soft, warm, and, in my 1st grade mind, gigantic. I think I remember being able to choose between chocolate and vanilla. Both were good, but the vanilla cookies were the best. Thanks for the memory!
