Kids' Cereal Turned Into Cookies!

I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume you probably have some cereal in your pantry. At our house, there's usually a couple of boxes of granola and a bag of "cereal for days off." This week it was Fruity Pebbles. There's something about the smell of this childhood favorite that always makes me smile.

So I was grinning from ear to ear as I made a batch of cereal cookies. This recipe works with a number of different kids' cereals, but the sugary, fruity-ness of this combination made my heart happy. Try it with your favorite cereals and share your smiles with me when you're done.

2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup softened butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 cup sugar
1 small package vanilla pudding mix
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 cups kids' cereal
1 cup chocolate chips (I used white)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour and baking soda.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter and sugar until creamy. Add pudding mix. When well blended, add eggs and vanilla.

4. Once wet ingredients are fully mixed, add dry mixture a cup at a time. Mix until just combined.

5. Carefully stir in cereal and chocolate chips.

6. Place 1-inch balls of dough on the parchment paper, carefully pressing them down slightly.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake. Let stand 1-2 minutes before moving them from the baking sheet to a cooling rack.
