Just in time for Christmas

This recipe is an adaptation from my mothers Peanut Butter no bake cookies, but I just had to fiddle with it to make it my own!  Plus I needed something to take to the cookie swap at work! 

4.5 cups frosted flakes
1.5 cups sugar
1 cup Karo syrup
3/4 cup cashew butter
1 cup pecans
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
3 lavender flowers
1 tablespoon vanilla
Smoked salt (optional)

In a saucepan combine vanilla, syrup, sugar, and lavender, let come to boil.  Remove from heat and stir in cashew butter.  In large bowl combine pecans and cereal, pour over syrup mixture.  Stir well, drop by spoonfuls on wax paper lined cookie sheet to set, sprinkle with sesame seeds! 

*Optional, for an extra pop, sprinkle with course smoked sea salt for an extra dimension! I also sprinkled with powdered sugar just to make them look nice! 

Also, I don't like to drop by spoonfuls, I'd rather pour it all out, let cure, then cut into squares, it's just faster!
