A New Twist on a Breakfast Classic

Happy Memorial Day Everybody!

I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend. Today I had fun trying my third cookie recipe! These cookies are called Cereal Killer Cookies. I’m a huge fan of cereal. These cookies turned out pretty well and they are also very colorful!

Recipe:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of cereal

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper (I did not have any parchment paper so I just sprayed the sheets with non stick spray and it turned out fine!)
  • Combine flour, cream of tartar, and baking soda in a medium bowl and set aside
  • Beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, add egg and vanilla and beat well in a large bowl
  • add the flour mixture to the sugar and butter mixture and mix until blended. Stir in the cereal
  • Place rounded mounds of dough on to cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are golden
  • transfer to a rack to cool

The cereal I used was Trix. They turned out really well! I was also proud of myself because I managed to have enough dough for 23 cookies and the recipe makes 24. Also the cereal smelled really nice while in the oven. Enjoy the holiday everybody!Image
