Lavender Honey Tea Cookies

Yield: 14 to 16 (2-inch) cookies
Active Time:


For the cookies
½ cup coconut oil, softened
⅓ cup Really Raw Unstrained Honey
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
⅛ teaspoon sea salt
2 cups gluten-free flour
1 ½ tablespoons dried lavender

For the icing
1 cup powdered sugar
Juice of half a lemon
Dried lavender, for garnish


Make the cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Add coconut oil to a large bowl and whip with a hand-mixer until creamy. Add honey, vanilla, and salt; mix 1 minute. Stir in flour and lavender with a rubber spatula until just incorporated. Form into a disc and place between 2 pieces of parchment. Roll to ½-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch round cutter, cut as many cakes as you can, then reshape dough and repeat until no dough remains.

Place cakes on sheet tray and refrigerate 10 minutes. Move to the oven and bake for 12 to 14 minutes, rotating halfway through, until edges are slightly golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack.

Make the frosting
While cakes cool, whisk powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl. If icing is too thick, add water 1 teaspoon at a time, until pourable. Spoon over cakes, allowing some frosting to drip down the sides. Top with dried lavender. To store, keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
