Note: The five star rating just as I had suspected when I made these is Hubs ' not mine. These cookies are light and crispy but ungodly sweet because of the butterscotch chips - right up his alley! He liked these sooo much that they've even taken over his first place Oatmeal Scotchies which have been his favorite for at least 20 years. Reducing the sugar in the recipe as some reviewers have done is NOT going to make these less sweet but might in fact change the quality of the dough which is perfect. I personally couldn't stand these but then I don't care for butterscotch chips - but I will look forward to making this same cookie with semi-sweet chocolate chips because I think they'll be awesome good! In the meantime Hubs has had four of these immediately after supper which he never does... Read More

I really LOVE the Oatmeal Scotchies, but I saw this and since I also LOVE anything with rice crispies in it, I though.... Oh yeah, this is gonna be the bomb. Well, it bombed out at my house. THe rice krispies gave it a chewiness that was not at all pleasant, it made it seem as if they were stale, even fresh out of the oven. Our family will stick with the scotchies, they ARE the bomb! By the way, we followed recipe exactly. Read More

Perfect! This cookie is just what I was looking for - crispy chewy and sweet. 12 minutes was plenty of time for my oven; make sure they aren't overcooked because they easily become too crunchy. Read More

This recipe is great. Any time I bring it to parties everyone always wants the recipe. I add 1/2 toffee chips with the rest of the ingredients. This is a big hit!!!!!!!! Read More

These are excellent! I didn't alter the recipe nor do I think it needs to be altered. I will definitely be making these again! I'm glad I read the reviews though because 11 minutes was definitely plenty of time in the oven. Read More

We love these! They are very different (in a VERY good way) with the crisp rice cereal. I have and will continue to make often. I love how the butterscotch chips crisp to like a hard candy for a tasty candy crunch. YUMMY!!!! Read More
