1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 T vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups crushed Cosmic CoCo's (a Whole Food's brand of cereal, but you could also use CoCo Puffs)
1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
1 12oz bag of mini or regular Semi-Sweet morsels
1/2 cup chopped white chocolate
In the KitchenAid with the paddle attachment (or use a hand-held mixer and large bowl) beat the butter and sugars until fluffy.
Add the flour, baking powder, and salt to the mixer and combine completely. Add the crushed Cosmic CoCo's, mini chips, chopped cranberries, and white chocolate and mix well.
I chopped the cranberries a little so the pieces would be more uniform with the mini chips and easier for a toddler to digest! Preheat oven to 375F-degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment. I just used a large tablespoon to drop the dough on the baking sheet and Maddie flattened them a little.
Ready for the oven...bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool, 5 minutes on the pan before moving them to a baking rack to cool completely.
Maddie wanted her's with a glass of milk, of course, and just like the time Kelly watched Ari "dunk" for the first time...I watched how instinctively Maddie did the same with her cookie.
