Lemon Lavender Cookies

Call me a nut!!! I know I am. Last week I did a repost on “What’s A Lemon Good For Anyway?” and just realized that I never added the recipe for Lemon Lavender Cookies!! Ok no one called me on it or you just think I am nuts. 🙂

Here is the most delicious Lemon Lavender Cookies that I cannot take credit for, it goes to the amazing Giada DeLaurentis on the Food Network. All of her recipes have impressed me as being easy to make and incredibly yummy. I make these quite frequently and think I will make them for my upcoming Herbal Class here next week.

Lemon Lavender Cookies

          Ingredients

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup almond flour – you can just grind your own from a handful of almonds
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces, chilled
  • 1 large lemon, zested
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a food processor, pulse together the flours, arrowroot, sugar, lavender, salt and baking soda.

Add the butter and lemon zest. Pulse until the mixture forms a coarse meal. Add the honey and lemon juice. Pulse until the mixture forms a soft dough. Form the dough into 1-inch round balls and press into discs, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter and 1/4-inch thick. Arrange in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until light brown around the edges, 9 to 11 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely, about 15 minutes.

    1. Hi Erin, unfortunately I don’t grow my own organic lavender. I have tried but it is a tough plant for me here in GA. I do order it from Mountain Rose Herbs which you can order directly from my blog(there is a sidebar with the Mt. Rose link.) So happy you like the recipe!!!
