Rice Krispie Cookies 


A super easy to make but so light and buttery cookie that we love! A co worker brought some to a grade level meeting and I was in heaven! Best eaten the same day...but trust me this won't last long. This is a fun one for kids to help make.

Tips and Suggestions

  • Oven time will vary so watch carefully for cookie to turn golden with edges slightly darker and adjust your time as needed. It can burn easily so make sure to watch the first batch to get the perfect time for your oven.
  • Be sure to space about 3 inches apart because it will spread as it cooks.
