Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter Cookie Stackers

Wahoo, it’s Thursday already!!  Hope everyone is having  a great week 🙂

Does everyone else have kids who BEG for all the sugary cereal like mine do?!  It is a constant battle with my two 🙂  We don’t buy it all the time, but I caved in last week and picked up some good ol’ Cap’n Crunch. Before my boys devoured the entire box within a day, I created a cookie with bits of Cap’n Crunch inside!  Can I just say these are so crazy good.  I typically get rid of all my goodies after I sample, but holy cow I had at least a half dozen of these.  I love the little crispy bits of Cap’n Crunch in each bite of cookie.  Just wait till you try these 🙂

Hope you all enjoy!!

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup Cap’n Crunch Cereal, crushed with rolling pin

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a stand or electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until well combined.  Beat in peanut butter until combined then beat in the egg and vanilla.

2.  In a large bowl mix the flour baking soda and salt.  Slowly add to wet ingredients on slow speed.  Add in Cap’n Crunch Cereal until just combined.  With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.  With the tines of a fork, press gently forming a criss cross shape over tops.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until baked to your liking.

    This recipe is missing baking soda…. made these cookies exactly as directed here and they came out flat… I googled cap n crunch cookies and it says 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda is needed. Great concept and all but make sure you have the right recipe before you make these so you don’t waste all the ingredients like I did.

      Hi Emily,
      So sorry the recipe was missing baking soda! I don’t know how I missed that, I definitely used it in the recipe, it’s edited now.

    This cookie just did not work at all. Dough was way too soft, even though I chilled it, cookies were flat and tasted like peanut butter, not the Cap’n.
