Ingredients
  • 2 cups Western Family Berried Treasure cereal, divided
  • 1 cup Western Family All-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon Western Family Baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Western Family Salt
  • ½ cup Western Family Unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup Western Family Granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Western Family Brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup Western Family Peanut butter
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Western Family Vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a resealable plastic bag, crush 1 cup cereal with a rolling pin. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and crushed cereal. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer on medium speed to cream together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy, 5-6 minutes.
  5. Add peanut butter, egg and vanilla extract to the butter and sugar mixture. Continue to mix until well blended.
  6. Add in dry mixture and stir until combined.
  7. Scoop one inch balls of dough onto lined baking sheets and use the back of a spoon to slightly flatten each ball.
  8. Top each pressed ball with 3 or 4 pieces of cereal and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are slightly browned.
  9. Let cool before serving.
  10. Tips: Take your time as you let the butter and sugars cream together. It should whip up and be a fluffy consistency. The more air you introduce into your butter mixture, the softer your cookies will be.
