Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, peanut butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the peanut butter mixture. Crush the cereal squares and stir into the dough until well blended. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten slightly using a fork and making a criss cross pattern. Dip the fork in sugar to prevent sticking.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bottoms are lightly browned. Let stand on the cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Awesome recipe. Doubled the recipe and added honey nut cherrios instead of rice crispies. I would definately use it again.

These cookies had a great flavor but the cereal makes these a little more chewy than I would like and they were also very crumbly and kept falling apart. I did substitute half of the white sugar for brown sugar and also added a half tsp of vanilla to give a little more depth to the flavor. I probably wont make this again.
