I worked in a bakery in high school, with occasional appearances in college. I never baked anything [I would’ve burned that place down] but worked the counters selling stuff. Even though I have the worst sweet tooth, I have a hard time going into any bakery because of its cloyingly sweet smell. Oh, the dilemma – The need for sweet vs the smell of a bakery. That’s probably why I started baking so much more on my own.
Chocolate Chip Rice Crispy Cookie
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cups sucanat sugar [or brown sugar]
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups puffed rice cereal [or cocoa crispies]
6 ounces semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until well combined. Add flour to mixture. Fold in puffed rice cereal gently so as not to break up the puffs. Incorporate chocolate chips.
Bake for 10 – 15 minutes.
