Lavender, Rosemary & Orange Cookies

March 31, 2017

Upon returning from a restorative family trip to the Ojai Valley, I was inspired to bake cookies using aromatic Spring herbs and citrus that fill the air this time of year. The buttery undertones and neutral flavor of shortbread to allow the lavender, rosemary and orange to shine through. A simple orange icing really takes this cookie to the next level. Gather Cookies: 1/2 cup of butter 1/4 cup of sugar 1 1/2 cups of flour 1 tsp of vanilla extract a…

Coconut Macadamia Cookies w. Cacao Nibs & Flaked Sea Salt

These cookies are easy to make, don’t require many ingredients, don’t take long to bake, are naturally sweetened and are both vegan and gluten-free.
