Cookie Recipe of the Week: Maple Oat Chewies - Easy Drop Cookie Recipe to Kick Off Summer

Image: The Cookie Elf

Maple Oat Chewies are a simple drop cookie. The chewy texture is off set by the addition of crisp rice cereal, like Rice Krispies®, which gives the cookie surface a bit of crunch.

But it is molasses, maple flavoring, cinnamon, and oatmeal that combine together to evoke smells, tastes, and memories of hearth and home in this ultimate “comfort food.” It is easy to see why this cookie recipe was a favorite at the Pillsbury Bake-Off #32 in 1986.

Prep time: about 15-20 minutes
Bake time: 8-12 minutes
Makes 4-5 dozen cookies
