These are great cookies! Very tasty and easy to make.Watch the time though in my oven it took only 9 minutes to bake them instead of the 12-15 in the recipe. It's a good recipe for my low carb diet and for my wheat intolerant friend for whom they were a birthday treat. Read More

Beware: Most crisp rice cereal contains malt flavoring which is not gluten free. Read More

5 Stars for Taste! I love almond cookies and these deliver in taste. I crushed up the cereal a bit. I love the texture. You do have to watch the cooking time and the recipe doesn't make as many as stated. Read More

I loved these cookies. I baked them for my personal Christmas treat. I did crunch up the rice cereal. I also used 1-4 cup of agave instead of brown sugar I used lard instead of butter "I cannot have dairy. I did not put chopped almonds in the mix instead I pressed a toasted whole almond into each cooky. They were great! Read More

We really like these delicious crispy cookies. I too crushed the cereal a little. It made 18 average sized cookies for me. Right when these cookies are gone they're asking me to make more! Nice buttery flavor! Read More
