Chocolate Chip Crisps

This recipe is pretty straight forward and the same techniques that were used in my oatmeal cookies were used here. I know, I know, another "repeat" recipe but I promise, my next post will be different!

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.

The Ingredients:
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1 cup sugar
-1 egg
-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

The Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Muy importante that the oven's preheated before baking!
2. Cream the butter and sugar.
Make sure to scrape the sides, the bottom and the paddle before the next step!
3. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Scrape scrape scrape!
4. Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together.
I didn't sift my ingredients together, but you can if you want. A little sifting never hurt anyone.
5. Add the dry to the wet in two intervals, scraping in between.
What your dough should look like after adding the dry ingredients.
6. Fold in the cereal and chocolate chips gently to avoid breaking the cereal too much.
Before adding to the dough
7. Bake until golden brown,about 10 to 12 minutes. Halfway through baking, I like to turn the baking sheets around in the oven since there could be uneven hot spots in the oven. That way, every cookie bakes in the same amount of time and in the same amount of heat, if that makes sense.
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.
Don't you love my purple mat?
8. Enjoy!
