I try to be selective with the ingredients that I use in my recipes. Even if it is as small as a grain of salt or one drop of oil… it can all have an impact on your health. And speaking of oil, I added a few drops of Young Living Lemon oil, which is an essential oil that promotes clarity of thought and purpose. It also has a purifying citrus scent that is invigorating, enhancing, warming and is known as one of the most fragrant essential oils.
I read that inhaling lemon can actually counteract occasional feelings of depression. This puts a whole new spin on “inhaling a dozen cookies.” hehe
Don’t confuse lemon oil and lemon extract. Oils are much more concentrated than extracts. The lemon oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons, not the lemon fruit and doesn’t contain alcohol. In many cases, you will only need a few drops of a oil where you might have used a full teaspoon of an extract.
I mentioned above that this cookie has a creamy texture (thanks to the cashews), and it’s that wonderful texture that allowed me to use a piping bag and tip to create these fun shapes. I also testing out my Spritzer Cookie maker which did pretty good. Not all of the templates turned out so great but as you can see in the photos below… I was able to pump out some great shapes. It’s the small things in life that can bring such joy. :)
After about 4-5 hours, I removed the cookies from the non-stick
sheet and placed them directly on the mesh sheet to speed things up.
I am showing you the bottom of the cookies so you can see the
color difference indicating that the cookies are not ready just
yet. See how the color in the center of each petal is darker?
They are still sticky in that area. Just something to use as a marker.
These were some that I just did free-style with a star tip.
