I hope you enjoyed my selection of OREO recipes from some really awesome blogs I follow! After posting that, I decided I HAD to tell you about a recipe I made pre-blog from Picky Palate, one of my favorites.
White Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunchers
Recipe by: Picky Palate
2 Sticks Butter, softened
1 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
¾ Cup Sugar
2 Large Eggs
1 Tbsp Real Vanilla Extract
2 ½ Cups Flour
1 Cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, slightly crushed
1 tsp Baking Powder
½ tsp Salt
1 Bag White Chocolate Chips
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees
-In a stand or electric mixer beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in the eggs and vanilla until well combined.
-In a large bowl combine the flour, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, baking powder and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the white chips until just combined.
-With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough and place onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet 1 ½ inches apart.
-Bake for 9-12 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden brown.
-Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
Okay, so these cookies are freakin’ fantastic. The only changes I had to make to her original recipe were: A. I used generic Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal. LOL. B. At the time, I was unequipped and didn’t have silpat or even parchment paper… so I just cooked these bad boys on a sprayed cookie sheet.
You can see by comparing my pictures with the pictures from the original recipe on Picky-Palate that mine are much flatter and crispier. I really liked the way they turned out because they became almost caramelized, being so thin. However, her cookies are far prettier and probably much more gooey on the inside.
If you haven’t checked out this blog yet, definitely do since it’s great! She makes so many different types of recipes and they all sound just as delicious as these cookies.
