Crispy Crunchy Chocolate Chip Craisin Cookies

Like most cookies, this batter is "textbook" cookie batter....cream the sugar and butter together, add the egg and beat til creamy.  Add the dry ingredients just until incorporated, gently add the chips and whatever else, take spoonfuls and place on your cookie sheet, etc......  What makes them incredibly delicious and different is I replaced the raisins with craisins and added rice cereal.... ergo the crispy crunchy part of the title.  

Here is a list of ingredients:

1 ¼ cups flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
½ cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups rice cereal (such as Rice Krispies)
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup craisins

As I said, cream the butter and sugar together in your mixer.  Add the egg and vanilla and beat until creamy.  Add in all your dry ingredients and mix just until blended.  Now, gently mix in the craisins and chips.  Last but not least the rice cereal.  Try not to mix too much.

Use any size spoon you would like and shape the dough into a ball.  Once you place it on the cookie sheet, gently flatten with the palm of your hand.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.  Let cool and watch them disappear!
