Lavender Rosemary Butter Cookies

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 T coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 6 T butter, softened
  • 1 T maple syrup I’ll be honest here, I used 2 T
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 T dried lavender
  • 1 T fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • Raw honey, optional

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl toss together flours, baking soda, and chopped rosemary.
  3. Using the back of a wooden spoon (or mortar and pestle) gently crush the lavender to release the oils.  Add this to the dry mixture.
  4. Whip butter and maple syrup. Fold in flour and mix until the dough comes together.
  5. Shape dough into a log shape and wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Unwrap dough and slice into 1/2 inch round cookies.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes.
  8. While the cookies are still warm, brush with raw honey if desiring something slightly sweeter.

The Verdict

Tasty!  Okay for starters, my partner did not like them, and he’s never told me that about a cookie before.  He claimed that they left him with a “bad taste in his mouth.”  But pfft.  They’re delicious, and he’s wrong.  Sure, these are an unusual cookie.  Lavender and rosemary are unconventional ingredients for a cookie.  They taste a little bit like afternoon tea time cookies instead of dessert cookies, but the recipe is solid.  However, I do prefer them a little sweeter, so I doubled the maple syrup AND I brushed them with honey.
