My pantry is bursting with food, and while I would never complain about having too much food when some others don't have enough, it is getting hard to find things in there! I particularly needed to find a way to use up some of the cereal that had been left in there. These cookies were a delicious and easy solution to my multiplying cereal box situation.

I mixed 125 gms of Softened Butter with 140gms Brown Sugar until pale and creamy. Add 2 Eggs, 1 at a time and a teaspoon of Vanilla Essence, beating well after each addition , until well combined. Fold in 1 and 3quarters of a cup of Self Raising Flour and one cup of Cereal of the flaky fruity kind.

I formed the mixture into balls using 2 spoons and rolled them in more cereal before placing them on a paper lined baking tray , flattening them slightly and baking them in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes.
I made sure I left plenty of room for them to spread which was a good thing because they did!
They didn't last long at all, I think I've solved my problem! If only all problems could be solved in such a tasty way!
