On the 9th Day of Advent Cookies

On the 9th Day of Advent Cookies:


1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups each: crisp rice cereal, semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried chopped cranberries or cherries

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.

Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl with a mixer on medium speed until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Mix in flour mixture. Stir in the cereal, chocolate chips and dried cranberries just until mixed.

Drop by tablespoonfuls on a lightly greased baking sheet; bake until golden, about 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

We modified the recipe to use 1 1/3 cups whit-chocolate chips (instead of 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips) and 1 full cup of craisins.

(While these cookies did not come out with the appearance I thought they should, my husband and oldest daughter loved them!)
