Holy People Looking for a Cookie Recipe, Batman!

So, I got like a million and five hits today just because Anne Nahm linked to me. Well, okay, because she linked to me and it was about a cookie recipe I sent her (which I wrote about here). So, since I hadn't posted the recipe I'm sure there are a lot of people that were unfortunately disappointed because they were expecting the recipe that she was raving about.

So I figured, what the hell. I'll share it with everyone. Here it is:

Chocolate Chip Crispers

1/2 c. butter, softened (original recipe calls for margarine, but I used butter)
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 c. Rice Crispies (r)
1 c. chocolate chips

Here's what you do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large bowl, beat margarine and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together.
4. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well with a mixer. Stir in the Rice Crispies (r) and chocolate chips.
5. Grease a cookie sheet (or use a non-stick cookie sheet, or parchment paper, which is what I used) and drop the dough by teaspoonfuls onto the sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes or until light brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Okay, there it is. I hope you all enjoy! The recipe says it makes 2 dozen cookies, but I got 4 dozen small cookies by using a teaspoon to form them. The small ones still took 12 minutes to cook.

I also just realized that this is the first time I've ever posted a recipe on my site, which, considering how much I cook and bake (which is pretty much all the time), is pretty amazing.

Love to cook, hate to bake, can't follow a recipe to save my life, but this one looks easy, so I'm going to give it a whirl. I'll report back.

YEAH!!! I think you should do a recipe at least once a month! Can't wait to hear how the tomato sauce turns out.
