Week 24: Rocky Mountain Cookies!

I went with something simple this week, since I was trying to mix it up from the cake-based recipes, and I came across the Rocky Mountain cookies, which is a pretty good recipe.

In all honesty, it feels like a standard chocolate chip cookie with some extra things (old-fashioned oats and crisp rice cereal). These actually came out pretty chewy, and it’s a nice little twist on the old classic. You can barely tell there’s crisp rice cereal in them.

This recipe doesn’t require any pre-planning, so if you want to make this recipe on the fly, this is one of those recipes.

Rocky Mountain Cookies!

Ingredients:

  •  1 cup granulated sugar
  •  1 cup packed light brown sugar
  •  1 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  •  2 large eggs
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla
  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  •  1 teaspoon baking soda
  •  ¼ teaspoon salt
  •  ½ teaspoon baking powder
  •  2 cups old-fashioned oats
  •  2 cups crisp rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
  •  2 cups chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the sugars and butter until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat well.
  4. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder in a separate bowl. Then add to the butter/sugar mixture and mix.
  5. Fold in oats, cereal and chips.
  6. Drop tablespoonfuls of the cookie dough onto lightly greased or lined (with parchment or silicone liner) baking sheets.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies are lightly golden brown but still soft.
