Day 18--Cereal Killer Cookies

This recipe was adapted by author Sandy Aquilar from the recipe in Diane Mott Davidson's Cereal Murders.

Cereal Killer Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix together in a small bowl:
1 cup chocolate chips
1 (7 1/2 oz) bag almond brickle chips
         (Heath or Bits o' Brickle)
2 cups Oatmeal

Mix together in another bowl:
1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder

In a third bowl blend with a mixer:
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

Blend slowly into sugars:
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter

Add and blend well:
2 large eggs
1 Tablespoon vanilla

Add the flour mixture and blend with mixer.

By hand stir in the oat and chips mixture.

Using a 2 tablespoon measure, place dough 2" apart on cookie sheets covered with parchment paper or 'release foil". (Cookies tend to stick without a pan liner)

Bake 12-15 minutes. Cool on racks. They may look slightly puffy but will flatten out as they cool. Makes 4-5 dozen.
