Most appealing—in spite of their “health-food” connotations—these cinnamon- and orange-scented cookies deserve to be included in anyone’s baking repertoire. This recipe was developed with our Granola, but you can use commercial granola if you crumble it thoroughly.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon


  1. Sift together into a bowl the flour, soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  2. Cream the butter until light, then gradually add the sugars and beat until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time; beat in the vanilla and orange rind.
  3. With the electric mixer at its lowest speed (or by hand), add the flour gradually and blend in. Stir in the granola. Chill
