I served these cookies to my husband and kids without telling them about the surprise ingredient.  They gave them the thumbs up and never would  have guessed that they were filled with Cap’n Crunch cereal.  I am a huge fan of cereal, just about every kind, especially the sugary sweet ones!  There was a box of Cap’n Crunch on the counter and I thought about the Top Chef finale where Richard Blais talked about making Cap’n Crunch ice cream.  He substituted foie gras for the Cap’n Crunch and went on to win the title of Top Chef.  I couldn’t stop thinking of the Cap’n Crunch ice cream.  I’m sure Mr. Blais is too busy with his Top Chef title to let me know how he planned on creating the ice cream, so I gave these cookies a whirl.  For a little something different, give these a whirl,  they are buttery and rich in flavor.  What’s the most unusual ingredient you’ve added to cookies?

Recipe: Cap’n Crunch Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  5. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Enjoy!

Years ago I worked at a seafood restaurant that served sea scallops coated in Cap’n Crunch and deep fried, with a kiwi-something sauce on the side for dipping; It was an appetizer and sooooo yummy! Maybe you could “recreate” it? :)

When I was making these cookies I remembered seeing a chicken recipe like that. I’m not a fan of scallops and I live in the middle of nowhere, so seafood is a little hard to come by, I’ll see what I can do!

I’ve made cookies with rice crispy cereal in them and I’ve been contemplating maybe cinnamon toast crunch. I love trying new twists on old favorites like this.

Milisa April 8, 2011 at 10:20 pm

Sylvie, that’s a good idea. Cinnamon toast crunch would be great!

I love Captain Crunch but it always hurts my mouth. Now we can have it in cookie form. Genius! Now for that ice cream… ;)

When it says vanilla, does that mean vanilla extract or vanilla sugar?
