Hawaiian Sugar Cookies
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies cereal
Preheat the oven to 300°. Line baking sheet with silpat or parchment.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter with the sugar and salt until smooth and fluffy. Mix the baking soda with the vanilla, then add to the butter mixture. Add the flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well. Gently stir in the Rice Krispies.
Spoon 2-tablespoon-size mounds of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 3 inches apart. Bake for 15 minutes, remove the pans from the oven and gently flatten the cookies with a spatula. Rotate the pans from top to bottom and front to back and continue baking until the cookies are lightly cracked on the top and golden brown on the bottom, about 20-25 minutes longer. Let cool slightly, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
Makes 2 dozen.
Note: If you've been to Maui, these cookies resemble my favorite Kook-wee's!!!
