So, you’re wondering about this title, aren’t you? So I have a BFF who is sweet, amazing, and just the best ever. Her name is…wait for it…Jamie! WhenI made these cookies, I thought, “These are as good as Jamie! Sweet, amazing and just the best ever!” Hence the name, “As Good As Jamie Cookies”. However, the other name for them is ‘Rocky Mountain Cookies’. and as much as I like that name, too..I think I’ll stick with the name I came up with for this one.
The thing that will jump out and surprise you the most is that these cookies are made with Rice Crispy cereal. Yes. You read it right…RICE CRISPY! Um..can it get any better? What? You’ve never made cookies using Rice Crispy’s before? Well..let me shed a little light on the subject. Rice Crispy’s add this..airy, crunchy texture. However, these cookies aren’t crunchy and hard..they are light and fluffy and full of little bubbles of crispiness. I know this is confusing, but I promise you will love them. (If you don’t, you may send me your un-eaten cookies..I got your back.)

Preheat oven to 350*
*In a large bowl, cream together the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
