The Monday Recipe Blog

Well, another Monday, another recipe....We have another great cookie recipe from Lois Elaine Mueller's recipe box.

Lois had three children, all of whom, like most kids, loved cookies.  Lois was know for her terrific cookies, and today's cookie is really addictive.  We have all had Rice Crispy Treats - the marshmallow stuff that kids love - this isn't them.  Not even close.  Make a batch of these and they will go like wildfire...

Lois Elaine's Rice Crispy Cookies:

1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar (I substituted the Splenda brown sugar mix - used 1/4 c., turned out great)
1 egg
1/4 t. baking soda
1/4 t. baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 t. vanilla
1 c. flour
2 c. Rice Crispies

Cream the butter, then add the sugars, egg and vanilla.  Sift together the flour, soda, salt and baking powder; mix well with the other ingredients.  Add the Rice Crispies.  Mix and drop by teaspoonfuls onto a lightly-greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
