Cookie Recipe #295 - Krispies
Lots of crispiness in this cookie, rice krispies plus broken-up bits of a chocolate crunch bar (Nestles). Easy to make and great with a cup of coffee.
Ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup butter, softened, 1 large egg, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 cup crispy rice cereal, 1 1/2 cups (8 ounces)crispy rice chocolate bar, coarsely chopped.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a medium mixing bowl combine flour, salt, and soda; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl blend sugars and butter, mixing well. Add egg and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy.
Add flour mixture, rice cereal and chocolate chunks. Blend at low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake for 22-24 minutes. Allow cookies to cool for a minute or two before transferring to wire racks to cool.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
