Butterscotch Cereal Cookies – Kitchen Cabinet Recipes

By now you probably know that when it comes to cooking, I love easy! This recipe was one of my husband’s favorite back when he was a freshman in college. He had a friend whose mom would send these to him in a care package. I finally asked her for the recipe about 15 years ago. Butterscotch Cereal Cookies (Special K cookies) have been a favorite in our house ever since.

You don’t get much easier than this.   I usually double the peanut butter and use a full pack of butterscotch chips so my whole family can enjoy it longer.
