- 1/2 cup margarine labeled no trans or saturated fat, melted
- 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (or more if you like hot cookies)
- 8 ounces reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 cup Uncle Sam cereal
- 1 cup Rice Krispies
Combine the margarine, Tabasco sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and egg in a small bowl. Mix the flour, salt, cayenne pepper, and cheese in a large bowl. Add the margarine mixture to the dry ingredients and mix with your hands to form a dough. Add the cereals and continue mixing with your hands. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Carefully flatten the balls with a fork to make lines on the tops of the cookies. Bake at 350°F for 14–16 minutes or until cookies are crunchy. Slip a spatula underneath the cookies to prevent them from sticking to the pan but allow the cookies to cool on the pan.
Yield: 24 servings. Serving size: 2 cookies.
