"Peculiar looking flourless cookies. For rum-packed flavor try using 2 teaspoons rum extract in place of the vanilla."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

crisp rice cereal
I have made these cookies every christmas for almost 20 years. I roll them in shredded coconut, press a thumbprint in them to hold a slice of red and green candied cherry. They look very beautiful like that on the christmas cookie platter
These are pretty good, if you use REAL rum. I tried with the rum extract and the vanilla extract, but they tasted more like imitation flavorings. So I tried the recipe using Bacardi 151 Rum, and they were exceptional!! I reccomend using REAL rum for a truely better tasting cookie!!
These are great. I combine the sugar and beaten eggs before adding them to the melted butter so the eggs don't 'fry'. Also, I add the coconut to the mixture with the cereal and roll them in powdered sugar.
Very easy and very very good. My only problem with these is how sweet they are. (With the butter, sugar, and eggs they taste quite a bit like butter tarts, and they're that sweet, too.)
I remember making these as a child! I've looked for this recipe and could not find it, thank you! These are delicious
We wound up nicknaming these Crisp Rice Treats for Grown-Ups because of the wonderful rum flavor (used Captain Morgan) along with the texture we remember from childhood crisp rice treats. Delicious and a pretty big hit with our cookie share who liked the unusual treat. (didn't use the coconut)
Great recipe - add a little more rice cereal(1/2 cup) added cut up cherries and used orange flavoring for a change from vanilla.
Very good! I added 1/2 cup more walnuts in bigger pieces. I also added 2 tsp. vanilla and rum. Very good flavor!
