  1. Put both granulated and brown sugar in the bowl of your mixer. Mix together to make a really light brown sugar.
  2. You have 2 choices with the butter. You can let it come to room temp on its own, or you can soften it in the microwave by placing it on a paper plate and nuking it for 5 seconds on high. Roll it over 1/4 turn and nuke another 5 seconds. Repeat until all sides have been nuked 5 seconds. Now it will be ready. Dump it in your mixing bowl. Repeat with second stick of butter.
  3. Once you've added the butter to you mixing bowl, mix until it is smooth.

  6. Add oatmeal and Rice Krispies. Mix thoroughly.
  7. Add flour to your bowl in 1/2 cup increments, mixing well after each addition.
