Crunchy Jumble Cookies

Who likes chocolate chip cookies?  Who likes rice krispie cereal?  So why not put the 2 together!

I came across this recipe on Megan's Munchies site last week and decided to make them.  Granted, I kinda messed up, but they were still yummy!

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups rice cereal
1 (12 oz) bag semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 2 cups)

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Lightly grease cookie sheets.
  2. Stir together flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl; set aside.
  3. In large mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.
  5. Gradually add flour mixture.
  6. Stir in rice cereal and chocolate chips.
  7. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet.
  8. Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned.
  9. Remove immediately from cookie sheets onto wire rack.  Cool completely. 
Yield:  3 dozen.

My mistake...?  Well, for some reason, I took 1/2 cup of butter for 1/2 cube of butter.  So, ah, there was 1/2 the amount of butter.  Needless to say, they were dry, dry, dry cookies.  The dry batter was still good though.
