If you’re looking for a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe, this isn’t it. In fact, I wouldn’t even put these in the same category at all. They’ve got chocolate chips, but they’re not chocolate chip cookies. My mom’s been making these cookies for years now and they’re light, crunchy, and really delicious! In fact, they’re so great, I had her make a batch while I documented the process. (And taste-tested of course!)
- 1 1/4 c. flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 c. softened margarine or butter
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups Rice Krispies
- 1 – 6 oz. pkg. (1 cup) chocolate chips
- 1 c. raisins (optional)
1. Sift together flour, soda, and salt. Set aside.
2. Beat margarine and sugar together until well blended.
3. Add egg and vanilla, beat well.
4. Add dry ingredients, mix until combined.
5. Stir in Rice Krispies, chocolate chips, and raisins. The mixture will seem pretty dry. Just keep at it until everything is pretty well blended. It will still be really crumbly.
6. Drop by level tablespoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheet. (We used lined parchment paper and it worked great!)
7. Bake in 350 degree oven for approximately 12 minutes (325 degrees in a convection oven for 8-10 minutes).
8. Remove from sheet immediately and cool on rack.
This makes approx. 3 dozen cookies and they won’t last long!
