Flower Petal Shortbread Cookie Ingredients:

2 cups almond meal

6 tablespoons softened butter

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Handful of dried flower petals {like rose, lavender or jasmine}

*Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Elixir-Infused Glaze Ingredients:

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons coconut cream

1 dropperful of your favorite flower elixir {we used Infinite Love}

Instructions:

Using a fork, mash together the butter, almond meal, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Once it’s smooth and well mixed, add in and evenly mix the flower petals of your choice ~ we used dried rose petals + lavender for these cookies, but next time we are going to try rosemary or lilac! See full list of edible flowers on page 376 in Flowerevolution.

Place the dough on a piece of plastic wrap in the shape of a log, about two inches in diameter. Wrap it all up and place it in the fridge to set for 1 hour.

When you’re ready, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and take the dough out of the fridge. Smooth out the roll, remove the plastic and slice it up into ¼ inch cookies. Place the cookies on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper and bake for 12 to 14 minutes. When the cookies look golden, they are ready!

Once they cool down, mix the coconut cream, honey + your favorite elixir in a small bowl. With a spoon, drizzle the glaze over all of the cookies. If you’d like, you can sprinkle some more petals on top!
