Yield: About 4 dozen

Crispy rice cereal gives these sensational cookies an extra crunch. Be sure to include one or two in school lunch boxes.


  • 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup crispy rice cereal


Adjust rack to lower third of oven and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt onto a sheet of waxed paper. Using an electric mixer on low speed, cream the butter, sugars, and peanut butter just until thoroughly blended. Mix in the eggs and vanilla until well combined. Add the dry ingredients, then the walnuts and chocolate chips. Using a rubber spatula, lightly stir in the rice cereal by hand so as not to crush the cereal into crumbs.

Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of batter onto parchment-lined baking sheets, about 2 inches apart, and bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until cookies are golden. (Do not overbake.) Remove cookies from the parchment paper to a wire rack to cool.

    These cookies are the best. I could not make them fast enough for everyone that came over for Christmas. Another cookie well done. Thank you.
