These cookies are bright, cheerful, and a welcome splash of color in the midst of a rainy week. I love the slightly fruity flavor of these sweets!


  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 sticks softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups crushed Froot Loops, and a handful of uncrushed to decorate
  1. Preheat an oven to 375 F. 
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. 
  3. Cream together the sugar and butter in another bowl. Mix in the egg and vanilla. 
  4. Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in the crushed cereal and chill for half an hour. 
  5. Spoon the dough into rounded teaspoons on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are crisped and slightly browned.
  6. Remove from oven and quickly press a few whole pieces of cereal into the top of each cookie. Let cool for another 5 minutes before eating.
