I am hoping to add pictures at a later time but I have so many people asking for recipes and I don’t know how much baking I will do, I decided I will at least get the recipes out there!
I am going to say right off I am normally NOT a fan of Oatmeal cookies. But these… these are like crispy, chewy, buttery surprises. The secret ingredient? Rice Krispies! They make them SO good!
First thing I am going to say is, if there is vanilla or cinnamon in a recipe I am known to toss a little more in than the recipe calls for. Just a splash or pinch more.
2 sticks butter – soften
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 C brown Sugar – packed
2 C Rice Krispies
1-2 C chocolate chips – I use milk, sometimes semi.
2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 C oatmeal
There is no right or wrong way to mix this, I do it different every time, but I always add the oatmeal, rice krispies and chocolate chips at the end. So mix it up, drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 8-12 min.
I got this recipe quite a few years back from a friend and it has become my favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. If you like a thick peanut butter layer on your sandwich where you can barely open your mouth to take the next bite or like to eat it straight out of the jar… these cookies are for you! You may feel a little guilty eating these but they are worth it for sure, at least I think so!
So I have a friend Tonya who actually inspired me to start a food blog. I had played around with the idea for a year and then a comment she made to me helped my decision. What did she say to me? One day when I brought in goodies she said “Get away from me you food devil” It just made me think that would be a great name for a food blog…. but alas it was taken along with other variations of it. But after thinking about it awhile I came up with Food Chaos.
