I love quickly throwing together cookies when I am going to have people over for tea and coffee. There is something so wonderful about fresh, homemade cookies that makes your guests feel so special. This recipe came about because I was given a couple boxes of Dorset granola cereal from a friend that moved away. We don’t really eat granola so it was just sitting in the cupboard untouched. So I decided to use it up in a granola cookie. Not only did my guests enjoy a wonderful warm cookie, but I was able to use up ingredients that had just been sitting around for a couple of months.
124g (1/2 c.) plain yogurt
84g (1/2 c.) granulated sugar
100g (1/2 c.) packed brown sugar
113g (1/2 c.) butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla
218g (1 3/4 c.) plain flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
170g (2 c.) granola cereal *any kind
Heat oven to 375. In large mixing bowl, combine yogurt, sugars, butter, shortening and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until well blended.
Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. bake for 8-10 minutes, or until set.
