Lemon Lavender Cookies

On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

Lemon lavender cookies!

Here's another delicious recipe to try this holiday season.

Lemon Lavender Cookies
Lemon Lavender Cookies

3 1/4 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
4-6 drops lemon essential oil*
4-6 drops lavender essential oil*
3 eggs
1 tsp baking powder

Cream butter and sugar, then ad lemon and lavender essential oils.
 Add eggs one at a time.
Add dry ingredients.
If the mix is too soft: cover and chill for 15-30 minutes.  If the mix is too dry: add milk one tablespoon at a time until the dough is wet and soft enough to pass through a cookie press.
Fill your cookie press with your dough, using whatever shape for your cookie you would like and press onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Alternatively – drop by the heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes, or until puffed and slightly browned on the edges.  Transfer to a cooling rack.


*Use only PURE essential oils.  Check the label to be sure it is safe for internal use.

E-mail me for a free sample of the essential oil of your choice.  And come back tomorrow for more 12 Days of Christmas ideas.
