I created this recipe when I became highly addicted to the new Kellog's Fiber Plus cereal, "Caramel Pecan Crunch"...
I took one bite and "mmmmm'd". I thought to myself, "self, this will make an amazing cookie"!!

I played around and came up with a winner! Family loved it, (score), now co-workers... to quote one of my coworkers, she said... "Didi, this taste like Christmas in my mouth"!!

I almost changed the name to that, because she nailed it literally on the head. This cookie tastes like Christmas!!! So good and ADDICTING!!!

Hoping you and yours enjoy this cookie as much as we do!!

Enjoy!
