Maple Rice Crispy Cookies

1 3/4 cup Flour (sifted)
3/4 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Milk
1 Egg (beaten)
1 tsp Maple flavoring or extract
1/2 cup Shortening
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Crispy rice cereal
1/2 cup Chopped nuts
1 1/2 cups Crispy rice cereal

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets well. Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In separate bowl, combine the milk, egg and maple flavoring or extract. In another bowl, cream together shortening and sugar until fluffy. Add the dry ingredients and liquid ingredients into the shortening-sugar mixture alternately, a little at a time. Stir only until all of the dry ingredients are well moistened. Fold in 1 cup of the crispy rice cereal and the nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls into additional rice cereal until coated. Place on greased cookie sheets and bake for approximately 15 minutes. Remove from pans and allow to cool.
