No-Bake Cereal Cookies

Saucepan Peanut Cookies
* 1 cup light corn syrup
* 1 cup sugar (so the first two ingredients are sweeteners; who said these were healthy?!)
* 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
* 4 cups cereal flakes plain Cheerio-type cereal

Stir the corn syrup and sugar together in a medium saucepan. Bring to a full boil. Remove from the heat; stir in the peanut butter and the cereal. Mix well.

Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto a buttered baking sheet. Let cool slightly. Makes 48 (supposedly. I think we usually just double this recipe because we like it so much)

Chewy and sweet and crunchy and peanut butter-y…. What could be better?

[modified from the Farm Journal’s Homemade Cookies cookbook; we are on our second copy of this one, it gets used so often and has so much gooey goodness splashed on its pages]
