Gently fold in rice krispies until well incorporated. Drop by 2 tablespoon size mounds onto pans and bake for 15 minutes.
6
Remove pan from oven and flatten cookies slightly with back of spatula and return to oven making sure to rotate pan( if you are doing 2 pans at once then rotate AND switch pans on racks) and cook for 20-25 minutes more. cool on wire rack which seems best because for some reason they seem to hold heat longer than a regular cookie.
