Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Cream together white sugar, brown sugar and shortening until fluffy. Stir in the vanilla and eggs. Combine the flour, wheat germ, salt and baking soda; mix into the batter. Stir in crispy rice cereal and chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet, spacing cookies 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are light brown at the edges. Cool well before eating as the chocolate can burn your mouth.

Great Cookies! They are very "hearty" - probably due to the wheat germ. They have great texture and are easy to make.(I managed to make 96 with this one recipe, using tsp drops)

The flavor is good but a little too crunchy for me. Just a matter of personal taste.

These cookies are fabulous! I have to hand out copies of the recipe every time I bring these cookies someplace. They are crunchy; I've tried shortening the cooking time a little in hopes of getting softer cookies but haven't yet succeeded. I use my stand mixer for this recipe and would recommend this over hand-mixing. The batter is quite heavy. However, it would be possible to mix it by hand, just a little more elbow grease involved. A great recipe for the entire family to help with (esp. the stirring)!

I did not like the results with the rice cereal.

I have been looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe for a long time. One that would hold it's shape. This is the cookie I have been looking for thanks a million.

I don't usually review recipes but had to on this one. It's PERFECT! I have been looking for the perfect recipe that will turn out well even if I change it up a bit. I'm a cake person and use a product called creme bouquet and half of the vanilla in most recipes. It worked very well in this. I also only had choco-peanut butter chips available so I used those. This recipe is great. I only needed to cook them 10 min. but my oven is always too hot. THANK YOU!

These were a big hit! I used butter flavored shortening and the cookies were delicious. I halved the recipe because I wasn't sure if the family would like them. Even with just half, I had 52 cookies using a small cookie scoop.

These are wonderful little cookies. I like my cookies more crunchy and crispy, so they turned out great. However I followed the recipe exactly and made a whole lot more than 60 cookies. People love the rice crispy cereal in the cookies and ask me left and right for this recipe, so be prepared!
