Krispie Chocolate Chip Cookies



I love cookies. A little bit too much. So much that I can't really buy them, keep them in the house, be within 50 feet of them, you know, the norm. Or maybe not the norm... but it's my reality, so I deal. Unfortunately (yet rather fortunately in all other ways) I married a man with a metabolism of gold. He eats whatever he wants and just doesn't gain weight! Feel free to hate him for this, I know I do. Another unfortunate fact is that his favorite snack is also cookies. He eats at least 6 cookies every night. This is kind of counter productive to my attempts to keep them out of the house, but whatever, I like him so I deal.



I wanted to make some chocolate chip cookies for John's sister and her husband Michael so I decided to make these cookies that I saw on Lauren's blog. I knew they would be excellent because, honestly, how could they not be?! And sure enough, they really are. I like how the rice krispies give them a crunch. These are some really fabulous cookies and definitely worth a try!

Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 stick unslated butter
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
1 large egg
2 teaspoons hot water
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined after each. Mix in hot water and vanilla. Add flour mixture, in two batches, beating just until combined – be sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Using a wooden spoon, fold in the chocolate chips and Rice Krispies. Cover and refrigerate for 30 min. or longer.

Preheat oven to 375. Scoop out tablespoons of the dough and roll into balls. Place all balls on one baking sheet, and chill at least 30 min. Remove from fridge and place 12 balls on cookie sheet at a time. Bake until the middle looks just set and the edges begin to turn a light golden – about 8-12 minutes. Remove and let sit on the sheet for a minute. Move cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely.
