Ono Butter Rice Crispies

This delicious cookie recipe was shared by a friend, Susan O., who got this recipe from Yoko Iwanaga.
This cookie may not have a "Hawaiian" ingredient, but you may probably have never tasted a light, crispy, and so ono cookie like this. The secret is whipping  the butter and sugar very well.
