Retro Tiger Cookies are easy to make, and since the chocolate is marbled through the dough, the finished product looks like the coat of a tiger (if you use your imagination, of course). These cookies, which are adapted from a recipe in The Kellogg's Cookbook: 200 Classic Recipes for Today's Kitchen, are “Great!” and it would be very sad if the generations since the 50’s missed out on tasting them.
5 dozen cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups Kellogg's Frosted Flakes, crushed coarsely to make 2 cups
1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Cream the butter and sugar until well-mixed; beat in the eggs and vanilla and continue beating until light and fluffy.
- Measure the flour, baking soda, and salt into a fine strainer over the mixture and shake through (or sift); mix well and fold in the Frosted Flakes.
- Place the chocolate chips in a microwaveable container; microwave for 1 minute and stir until melted (if the chocolate doesn't fully melt, microwave an additional 30 seconds. Pour the mixture over the dough and swirl it through with a knife.
- Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough or drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined or greased baking sheets.
- Bake 11-13 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Let sit on the sheet a minute or two before transferring to cooling racks.
