Crispy Cereal Cookies

READY IN: 19mins
Recipe by grandma2969

not a very unique name..but I like this recipe..just messed around one day and decided to use up some small amounts of cereal left in boxes..Measure the cereal then crush it slightly..If you crush then will be too much cereal..I always "underbake" my cookies..the residual heat in cookies will finish the cookies Try using different flavor cake mixes sometimes I add dried cherries, cranberries or raisins..always like to do something different to change the recipe a little

Very easy to make and quite tasty. I baked them at 350 and I got 7 dozen cookies. I used egg whites, applesauce instead of oil and also added 1/2 cup of raisins. Definitely a keeper and I will try a spice cake mix and add chopped apple and raisins. Thanks for posting this recipe.
