Ellen’s Cookies

We asked Ellen where this cookie recipe came from and she told us she got it from a high school friend back in 1947, who got it from a family member.

Thanks to whomever it originated from—because they are delicious! The use of our The Olive Scene Blood Orange Infused Olive Oil instead of the vegetable oil called for in the recipe was done by Ellen’s best friend, Ginger, who then shared the recipe with us. 



  1. Add: 

    1. 1 cup rice krispies (I have used rice chex or even corn flakes)

    2. 1 cup flaked coconut

    3. 1 cup chopped nuts

    4. 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

    5. 1 teaspoon soda

    6. 1 teaspoon salt

    7. 1 cup oatmeal

    8. 3½ cup flour

  2. Roll in small balls, or use a small scoop, and place on cookie sheet with room for the cookies to spread as they cook.

  3. Press flat with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. 

  4. Bake at 375 for 7-8 minutes
