Sister, sister and the cookie crunch conspiracy

Today I spent some much needed time with my sister.  We live in the same town but rarely see each other.  I know, I know....both weird and kinda sad. 

We didn't necessarily do much as far as activities go, but what we did do was enough in my estimation.  We caught up.

Oh and we ate Cinnamon toast crunch cookies borrowed from espresso and cream

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cookies
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 1 1/3 cups Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease two cookie sheets with butter or nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  1. With an electric mixer, beat butter and oil together until combined. Add in sugar and powdered sugar and beat until creamy, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  2. With the mixer running at low speed, gradually add in the flour until just combined. Stir in the butterscotch chips and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal by hand.
  3. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet or roll heaping tablespoons into a round ball and place on cookie sheet. Flatten cookies slightly with your hand.
  4. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until just slightly golden around the edges. Cool on baking sheet 10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
