(that’s throwback thurday for those of you who don’t speak the #hashtag lingo) …
Recently, I came across this old Kellogg recipe card for Tiger Cookies – made using Frosted Flakes. Thought it would be a fun throwback recipe to make with the kids.
I actually lessened the sugar quantity when I prepared the dough.
Even with less sugar I think it’s a cookie evenTony would say is GR-R-REAT!
Here are some step by steps of what I did with some photos…
In one bowl I mixed flour, baking soda and salt
In another bowl I creamed margarine and sugar until fluffy. I used a 1/4 cup less sugar than original recipe. Then added the eggs and vanilla and mixed again. Mixed in the flour mixture 1/3 at a time. Next, I added the crushed frosted flakes cereal and incorporated into the mixture.
*I crushed the cereal in a ziplock with a meat mallet – a rolling pin would work too**
Drizzled the melted chocolate over the dough and with a knife swirled it through the dough – I used a snake like pattern as I swirled it through. Stopped when the dough looked marbleized.
*I melted the chocolate chips in a microwave safe ball on 50% power for about 2 mins 30 secs*
Prepare a lined baking sheet and pre-heat oven. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased or lined sheet. Original recipe called for tablespoon but the first batch was too big so I reduced the size of the spoon. I think my 2nd batch came better.
I removed from the baking sheets and cooled on wire racks.
First batch on the left…second batch on the right (I prefer the smaller cookie)
The recipe card said I would yield 5 dozen but I got 2 1/2 dozen or so. If cookies were smaller in the 1st batch I think I would have yielded closer to the 5 dozen.
