Bran Cookies

From Hot Off the Griddle #27, May 1994…but the original recipe is much older!


  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cream or milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 2 cups plain bran
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Cream the butter and sugar, add the well-beaten egg, the cream, bran, flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla.
  2. Mix together 1/2 cup (extra) each of bran and flour to use in rolling out.
  3. Roll only a third of the dough at a time, about 1/4 inch thick, and cut with a tin cookie cutter.
  4. Bake at about 350F, about 12 minute (until golden brown).

Makes about three dozen very healthy cookies!
