12 days of christmas baking - day 5: mrs. jew's crispy cookies

Mrs. Jew's Crispy Cookies via design. bake. run.

for this fifth day of christmas baking i decided to try out a new recipe. i had pinned this from earlier in the week onto my holidays pinterest board. i'm just surprised i made it. actually, i'm very happy i made it because these are really good. no wonder it's one of brandon jew, chef of bar agricole (in sf)'s favorite holiday cookie recipe. of course, the name of the cookie sounds familiar (a family recipe maybe?!). but anyway, that's besides the point. the point here is, you should definitely make these cookies. the recipe's simple enough and the added Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal adds a delicious unexpected in a good way crunch when you bit into it. i love it! below's the recipe should you want to make some tonight or any time! really, it's a little different from you typical chocolate chip cookie, but in a very good way. i made mine without the raisins because i don't care for raisins a whole lot. you can do the same or make the recipe as is. enjoy!

mrs. jew's crispy cookies
by brandon jew, chef, bar agricole
recipe from refinery29 sf

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups Kellogg's Rice Krispies
1 cup raisins
6 oz package of semi-sweet chocolate morsels (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl, combine the butter and sugar and beat until creamy. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix well.
  3. Blend in the flour mixture.
  4. Stir in the Rice Krispies, chocolate chips, and raisins.
  5. Drop level tablespoons full of mixture onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

makes 3-1/2 dozen cookies. enjoy!

note: i baked my cookies for only 9 minutes. but of course, you know your oven best. still, i say you should side on baking them at the lesser time amount (12 mins) than the full 15 mins and checking to make sure the cookies are done, rather than over baking these cookies. :)
