This recipe was recommended by Claire, who found it on a box of Life Cereal. Well, not exactly. What I forgot before I left for the grocery store to buy Life Cereal with a cookie recipe on it, was that Claire said she got it off the Kroger grocery store copy cat version of Life, Living Well. We don’t have Kroger here in Austin, so I used actual Life.
If you get to the bottom of a box of Life (or Living Well) cereal and want to use the dregs, this recipe is pretty useful. The cookies were good — not too peanut buttery, but with an interesting texture from the cereal and a good flavor overall. Chilling the dough keeps them from spreading much, so if you chill the dough you might want to press down the mounds of dough a little. Also, the recipe just calls for “butter” and doesn’t call for any salt, so I recommend you use regular butter or use unsalted and add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
