I really like these cookies. I hope some of you will too. I don't really remember the prep time so it's just a guess.

These are awesome! I confess I wasn't expecting much - I just needed to use up some rice krispies and was sick of making rice krispie treats. They have a lovely butterscotch-type flavor and a nice crunch. I did find I had to chill the dough until it was good and cold or else they spread all over the cookie sheet. I will definitely keep this recipe on hand and make it again and again, I really love these! I did also leave out the nuts as I have a small toddler and they are a choking hazard for him, and I wanted him to be able to have the occasional treat too, but I certainly didn't miss the nuts at all. Thanks for this recipe!
