Magpie Cookies

When I first made these cookies , my beautiful friend Maggie came over , she stood in my kitchen, and ate the entire plate without taking a breath! I felt she earned the recipe to be named after her. She’s the greatest.

Preheat oven 180c/350f

  • 1 cup flour(maybe a sprinkle more in the UK)
  • ½ teaspoon baking  soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup butter-room temp
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg-lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1  2/3 cup oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup dried cherries-chopped

Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt. Set aside.

In separate bowl, (or kitchen aid with paddle attachment) blend butter , sugars.

I've had the great good fortune of living abroad for more than a decade. The traditions, comfort and memories of home are things I cherish and carry with me on my travels. What I wasn't expecting was that other cultures and flavors would seep into my own traditions and favorites and influence a new batch of classics. Heres to evolving traditions and new memories!
