RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY

"I am a newlywed living in beautiful Virginia with my husband and 3 doggies. I'm a little on the hyper side and I am happiest playing hostess and cooking for a crowd! My kitchen is my domain and I find cooking to be very therapeutic. On a day off you might find me brewing a fresh pot of iced tea and hanging out in the kitchen either cleaning and organizing or tinkering with recipes! I rarely follow favorite recipes to a "T", preferring instead to allow my creative side to take over. I especially love the holidays because it gives me even more of an excuse to bake! In the summertime I love visiting my mom and stepdad in the VA Beach area. I love the ocean and I love to go shopping with my mom!"

    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!

    My kids love these!! They ate half of what i had made without me noticing they were eating them!! i will definitely make these again!! The cereal does give it a little different flavor than the usual peanut butter cookie - Thanks so much for the recipe!
