Step by step instructions
Step 1. While the oven is preheating, combine the softened butter, both types of sugar, eggs and vanilla. I used a stand mixer or you can use a handheld mixer.
Step 2. Use a separate bowl and whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder.
Step 3. Combine on low speed the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Don’t overmix and beat together until just combined.
Step 4. Add the rolled oats, Rice Krispie Cereal and chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
Step 5. Form the cookies with a cookie scoop. Then place the dough on a baking sheet. Don’t crowd the cookies and place them about 2 inches apart.
Step 6. Bake for 10-13 minutes until the edges are golden brown. Don’t overbake them as the cookies will continue to cook as they sit. Let them rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes.
Step 7. Then move the cookies to wire cooling racks to cool completely.
Step 8. Place on a platter and serve.
Keep the cookies store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. Put a piece of bread in the container with the cookies to keep the cookies moist.
- Don’t overbake the cookies. They will continue to bake as they sit and you don’t want to burn them. They should be light brown.
- Line the baking sheet with parchment paper. This helps cleanup to be easier and prevents the cookies from spreading too much.
- Don’t overmix the cookie dough. Combine only until mixed together. If you overmix the dough, the cookies will be tough.
Frequently asked questions
Normally, cookie dough can be frozen. However, this recipe can’t due to the rice krispies cereal. It will absorb too much liquid and the texture will change.
Some stay crispy and some soften. It results in an amazing cookie.
