For a long time it has bothered me to throw out the crumbs at the bottom of the frosted mini-wheats bag. So finally today I did something about it.
1 stick of butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
9 ounces flour (just about 2 cups)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4+ teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon (optional, especially if using cinnamon mini-wheats)
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (optional, but always good)
About 1 to 2 cups of the crumbs from the bottom of the frosted mini-wheats
2 to 3 handfuls of chocolate chips
Cream the first group of ingredients
Combine the dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture.
Finally, stir in the crumbs and the chocolate chips.
Heat oven to 370 degrees.
Put onto the cookie sheet in 1 tablespoon balls.
Bake for 11 minutes.
