    Harley Seashell Princess's Note:

    My mom first made these cookies for me back in 1979 when I was just in kindergarden. These unique peanut butter cookies feature the addition of Shredded Wheat cereal which adds a delicious and tasty "crunch" in every bite!

      These were very nice! Not much different flavor-wise than any other peanut butter cookies, but the cereal added a different, kinda chewy texture. I used my cookie scoop to dish these out and they were probably larger than intended since I only got 42 fairly big cookies (about 3" across). Even though they were large, they were baked perfectly in 12 minutes. A great way to use cereal that I don't like much by itself! LOL Thanks for the recipe!

      We really like these! I used applesauce in place of the butter, thinking that the peanut butter and egg would give it enough oil. I also used white wheat flour. While these were quite flat (due to the applesauce I think) they were a lovely easy cookie! A great way to use up my extra cereal. Thanks!
