As far back as I can remember I’ve been obsessed with lavender. I remember being in 5th grade and discovering scented soaps and bubble baths and pillow sprays and I was allll over the lavender scene. 

Lavender Hazelnut Cookies

I used to have a lavender scented pillow spray (because I was apparently a fancy pants child) that I would spray at least 20 sprays on my pillow before bed. I would lay my cheek upon a very wet pillow and take deep inhales I suppose to help me relax and ease myself  into sleep. Ok at the time I did this, it felt quite normal. Now as I am typing this to share with the public. It seems quite odd. Was I unusually stressed? Did I just really like lavender THAT much?

Then I grew up and realized lavender came in other forms too. Like flowers. And dried flowers. And when the opportunity presented itself to receive dried lavender in my CSA box, I jumped on that. I needed to create something with it. I needed to ingest lavender in some recipe form. 

Lavender Hazelnut Cookies

These are a nutty, delicate cookie the most beautiful marriage of hazelnut and dried lavender. This is the perfect tea cookie, the perfect spring cookie, something that isn’t overly sweet. I feel like the fact it’s made with hazelnut flour bumps up the indulgent treat feeling tenfold. 

So here’s how you make Lavender Hazelnut Cookies:

Lavender Hazelnut Cookies

In a medium bowl, whisk together the ghee, agave, egg, and vanilla. Add the hazelnut flour, baking powder, sea salt and lavender. Use a rubber spatula to fold until combined. 

Use a cookie scooper to scoop 12 cookies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Gentle press the tops of the cookie dough balls down ever so slightly.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown. When the cookies are cooled for 10 minutes, transfer them on a cooling rack.
