White Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies…

IMG_3969picnik.jpeg

Good Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend. We took a chance and took the kids to Disney Friday night with some friends. Apparently so did the rest of the entire state of CA. I have never seen the place so busy. Despite the crowds, we still had fun running around. Also got the boys 2 beta fish that almost ended as a major disaster. See bottom of post!!

You guys are going to love this fun little cookie. I have a long history with Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal. I vividly remember sitting on the couch every morning when I was pregnant with my first son devouring a nice big bowl of my favorite cereal. It was so convenient to perch the bowl of cereal right on top of my pregnant belly, just like my own personal table! That’s the one thing I do love when pregnant! Ok, enough of that….

I was lucky enough to receive a big box in the mail from General Mills full of a variety of their cereals. It’s been so much fun using them in recipes. This is another cookie dough that is crazy good. One bite and you might not be able to stop! Hope you all enjoy.

White Chocolate Cinnamon Toast Crunchers

2 sticks softened butter

1 Cup packed brown sugar

3/4 Cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 Tablespoon real vanilla extract

2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour

1 Cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, slightly crushed up

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 bag white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Slowly beat in the eggs and vanilla until well combined. In a large bowl combine the flour, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal, baking powder and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the white chips until just combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough and place onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden brown.

2. Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling. Enjoy with a tall glass of milk!

New Pet Fish That Mom Almost Killed…

IMG_0730picnik.jpeg

My boys have been begging for a puppy for at least 2 years now and we  (my husband and I) are just not quite ready yet, so I broke down and got 2 Beta fish for them.

As I was getting their new fish bowls ready, not paying attention to the fish I put in little cups, my oldest comes over screaming “Mom, Tommy is flipping on the the counter!” I felt so bad, I hurried and got him into water but wasn’t sure how long he had been out.

So……………..

The next morning, we were all celebrating both fish swimming in their bowls! So far so good. Tell me I’m not the only one who’s almost killed a family pet!

    I made these a week or so ago as written and they were AMAZING! Now I have a second batch baking, only this time I used butterscotch chips (’cause that’s what I had on hand). I can’t imagine it not being just as good as the first. 🙂 Thank you!

    I love these cookies! They are super easy to make, and in my experience, literally impossible to get wrong. GREAT recipe for when I want an alternative to regular old chocolate chip cookies.

    I found this recipe on Pinterest. The cookie dough and white chocolate combination was delicious, but the Cinnamon Toast Cruch pieces were very chewy almost tasting stale. I think the next time I make these I will skip the CTC and just add some cinnamon to the dough.

    My daughter loves cinnamon toast crunch so I have to make these cookies. As far as the bettas, yes they love to jump out! You have to be very careful with them. One time I was cleaning my tank, I had a 10 gallon tank for 1 betta, lol! Anyway, I was cleaning the tank and when I was all ready I looked over in the bowl that I had the fish in and he was gone. I looked all around and he managed to jump off my dresser to the floor. The fish survived, I felt so bad for it. The fish lived another 7 years until my husband and I went one vacation and my husband didn’t tell me he turned down the heat while we were gone and the fish died because the house was too cold. I was so mad because I had that fish from before we started dating! He killed it and I was so mad! I got over it but the story remains! I will never forget that jump he took, that was a long fall and he survived!

    Tried making your cookies but I wasn’t sure about the size of the butter sticks and ended up with double the butter I think! They taste wonderful but I think I might have to forgo the whole batch and start again. I also had the same issue with the CTC as another reader – they turned out really chewy. I wonder if it was due to the excess butter? Do you have any suggestions to make a low fat version of this recipe?

    My wife is 30 weeks pregnant and loves her cinnamon toast crunch (we shared a big bowl last night as a matter of fact). I’ve printed the recipe and will make them for her this weekend. Thanks for the great idea!!

  8. Sheila

    So funny! I am 30 weeks pregnant and have a big bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch every day… thought I was the only one! What a great recipe… they’re baking in my oven right this moment!

  9. Molly

    I love how you find neat ways to incorporate everyday pantry items into your baking!! As a kid, I loved Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but never would have thought to put it in a cookie. I’ll have to try this out 🙂

  10. Erin

    Tried these out! Really tasty, but my cereal pieces were a little chewy in the cookie. Did I not crunch it up small enough possibly?

    1. Jenny

      HI Erin,
      You do have to crush the cereal really small. I did a batch with large pieces and they were really chewy.

  11. Jessi

    I made these today, and I have to say that they were too sweet for our adult taste buds. The kids loved them though!

  12. Michelle {Brown Eyed Baker}

    Oh gosh I love Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Haven’t had it in ages. These cookies look awesome!

  13. ivoryhut

    Ooh. Crunchy cereal in cookies. I may just have to try this, especially since my son loves both white chocolate and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

  14. Cookin' Canuck

    It sounds as though you had a close call with the fish. You always have such fun cookies ideas and these are no exception.

    Cinnamon Toast Crunch was my favorite cereal when I was younger. I bet I would love these cookies!
