Secret Ingredient Cookies

Well, it is clearly not a secret anymore.  The secret is out.  These cookies are packed full of these:
I made these cookies with no plan to share them on the blog.  Shame on me!

But they were so dang good, I had to post these for all to see.

The texture of these cookies is perfection.  I have no other words.

Secret Ingredient Cookies
Makes about 12 cookies (double if you want more)

1/2 cup + 2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
3 tbsp butter
1 egg
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter Cheerios
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cream together butter & sugars, then add egg and vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients separately, then mix it all together.  Add in the cereal and chocolate chips last.

Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Seriously, if you are going to splurge on a cookie (or two), this is worth it!

I bet the cereal gives the cookies a nice crunch! Love this idea, Renee! Have a great day!
