– ½ cup SOOC Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil
– ¼ cup white sugar + more for sprinkling
– ¼ cup brown sugar
– ½ cup orange juice
– 2 cups flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– ½ teaspoon baking soda
– ½ teaspoon cinnamon + more for sprinkling
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl mix the olive oil, sugar and orange juice with a large wooden spoon.
In a smaller bowl mix the flour with baking powder, soda and cinnamon. Start adding the flour to the olive oil mixture gradually mixing with the spoon. You should have a soft dough, but not sticky so you can roll into balls.
Cover the dough and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Grease a pan with a bit of olive oil.
Make the cinnamon sugar mixture by mixing 2 tablespoons of sugar with ½ teaspoon cinnamon, blend well.
For small cookies, I take about a teaspoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Dip into the cinnamon-sugar mixture and roll it around then place on the pan.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes. Remove and cool on rack.
SUBSTITUTIONS: Try any of our citrus oils in place of the EVOO; Blood Orange, Eureka Lemon, Persian Lime, or Mandarin! If you like a savoury cookie, our Whole Herb Rosemary Olive Oil is especially delicious for this recipe.
