lemon lavender cookies

I think I’m on a bit of a vegan kick these days.  First came the Marcona Almond Mayo sans eggs and now these vegan Lemon Lavender Cookies.

Don’t worry, even though this recipe sounds a tad weird, it’s subtle and I think, delicious.  It kinda reminds me of the recipe in my gluten free cookbook for Rosemary Hazelnut Cookies.

Lemon Lavender Cookies

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Stir together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
  4. Form ½ inch balls and press onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet
  5. Bake at 350° for 7-10 minutes
  6. Cool and serve

Makes about 12 cookies

I cannot take credit for this yummy lemon lavender flavor combination; I actually found it in the 2009 Holiday Baking issue of Cooks Illustrated.

In cookbook related news, I had a radio interview this morning with Zorba Paster and Tom Clarke on the Zorba Paster on Your Health program.  These guys are great and I was thrilled to be on their national show which airs on NPR.

The lovely Chef Rachel over at thehealthycookingcoach.com wrote a fabulous review of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook –in fact, I think she explains some things in it better than I do.  You may want to check out her The Ice Dream Cookbook.  Thanks Rachel!

For those of you interested in my classes, I have a Gluten Free and Dairy Free Valentine’s Day Cooking Class on February 10th at Bauman College in Boulder, CO. See my classes page for more information.
