Granola Cookies

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.

Granola Cookies

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.

Add flour, baking soda and salt. Beat at low speed until soft dough forms.

Stir in the granola.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. bake for 8-10 minutes, or until set.

Let cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheets. Cool completely before storing.
