"Golden Crisp"- Bear Paw Cookies

Nancy J. Patrykus


A friend gave me this recipe.
I am sure it must be a recipe from Post Golden Crisp Cereal Co
I have made these many times.
Every one rates them highly.
All love the look of a Bear Paw for a cookie.
It is a drop cookie,with three indents on the edge of the cookie and one cereal is put in the indentation, before baking.
They are a rather cute cookie.
