One of my favorite things about the holiday season is sharing recipes with family, friends, and all of you. Cookie exchanges are so much fun. While I know these Christmas Crunch Cookies do not look appetizing they are so good with milk at morning, noon, or night.

An easy cereal cookie to make that doesn’t have to wait for the butter to soften. This is a recipe with melted butter. If your in warmer climates the cookies can spread so just add more cereal if this happens when baking.

If My Cookies Are Spreading:

After years of baking in a humid heat I’ve learned that recipes just need to be adjusted. Right now we have a temperature of 60 degrees so I added about a 1/3 cup more cereal to the cookies. If it was cooler like in the 40’s I wouldn’t adjust adding any cap’n crunch cereal.

The next tip on these cookies is to bake the cookies for only 10 minutes no more. If they look under baked I promise you they are fine. Pull them and let cool on a rack like seen in the photo above and below this text. This allows the cookie to cool and still be formed.

Once the Christmas crunch cookies cool down they will be formed and soft. Soft cookies are the best cookies. Nothing like biting into a chewy soft cookie. Dip it in warm milk on a cold winter night.
