Orange Crisp Cookies

These cookies are lovely – both fairly soft, but with a bit of crunch!


  • 6oz butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp orange extract
  • Zest of 1 orange (optional)
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 2 cups rice crispies


  1. Cream butter and sugar together.
  2. Add the egg, orange extract and zest (if using). Mix well.
  3. Add flour and baking powder, and mix until combined.
  4. Gently stir in the cereal, trying not to crush it too much.
  5. Place teaspoon sized quantities on a baking sheet, a few inches apart.
  6. Bake for about 10 mins at 180°C.
