Although, this post is a bit different, in a sense. Because people have requested it, I will start posting step by step pictures instead of just the finished product for all you visual learners out there. Let me know what you think about doing the blog this way :)
FYI: all the pictures are of what the ingredients should look like after each step.
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1 cup sugar
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 1/4 cups flour
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-a pinch of salt
-2 cups rice crispies cereal
-1 cup chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
|Muy importante that the oven's preheated before baking!|
|Make sure to scrape the sides, the bottom and the paddle before the next step!|
|Scrape scrape scrape!|
|I didn't sift my ingredients together, but you can if you want. A little sifting never hurt anyone.|

Tip: if you find that the bottoms of your cookies keep burning or baking faster than the rest of the cookie, you can put one or two empty baking sheets on the next rack down. That way, the sheets can help shield some of the heat from getting to the bottom of your cookies. Don't put it in until after you've preheated the oven though or it'll take longer to preheat.
