Fill the Cookie Jar!!!! How do you fill your cookie jar? I filled mine with Sweet and Crunchy Oatmeal Cookies last month. My daddy loves oatmeal and raisin cookies so this is what I decided to make him. They were super delicious too! He made sure to let me know more than once.
So I decided to make this my contribution to this month’s Fill the Cookie Jar. To me, these are a perfect summer cookie, because my kids are home all summer, and aren’t these the perfect typical after school cookie? Except now they got to eat these all June 😉
These cookies are just a basic oatmeal raisin cookies-with a special touch. They are loaded with sugary crispy rice cereal and corn flakes cereal. What’s not to love!?
This cookie dough is dangerous. Trust me. Do not taste it! Don’t say I didn’t warn you if you don’t have enough to make your cookies!
They are so simple to scoop onto cookie sheets too!
These might just disappear if you have kids in the kitchen.
