LAVENDER CREAM COOKIES
These cookies are awfully delicious and awfully lady like. We make these for tea parties and such. Enjoy these little gems at your next gathering, especially with a hot cuppa tea!
Yields 10 -12 cookies
Lavender Cream Cookies
2 cups hazelnut or almond flour
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup 100% maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 drop lavender oil
Optional - Sprinkle dried lavender atop each cookie
Pre-heat the oven at 350. Stir together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Separately, whisk together all wet ingredients and stir into the dry ingredients. Roll out dough between two sheets of parchment and cut into small circles. Bake for 7-9 minutes, until just golden brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and place the cookies on a cooling rack.
