Easy sugar cookies and Utah love from Revolutah

I am hosting a giveaway with Revolutah over on my other blog (Giveaway HERE)  and they were kind enough to send me this adorable cookie cutter to show off. What better way to show my Utah pride than with some delicious cookie love?

Sugar cookies are the easiest cookies to make and you can really do anything with them. Sprinkle on cinnamon and sugar, drizzle chocolate, add sprinkles,  whip up some colorful frosting or pipe on pretty designs, the possibilities really are endless.  These cookies are a breeze to whip up and roll out very nicely without getting sticky.

Use any cookie cutter you can dream up but if you are a lover of all things Utah, like myself, then head over to Revolutah and pick one of these gems up for yourself!

Coconut lavender cookies

coconut lavender cookies

I know , I know I have too many recipe with  coconut and lavender. I can’t help it, honestly I think I might have a problem but I don’t care because coconut and lavender is delicious! My family would beg ti differ however since my daughter absolutely hates coconut and my husband hates anything lavender.  I may or may not have made these cookies  all for myself anyway. These are just sweet enough to satisfy your craving but wont give you a sugar high, this can be dangerous since you will be more inclined to eat the entire batch in one sitting.  These are perfect for tea parties too, add a little icing for extra sweetness!

What you need

  • 1 c White whole wheat flour
  • 1 c shredded sweetened coconut, I recommend an all natural brand like THIS
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 2 tbsp lavender
  • 6 tbsp  coconut oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs

How to make it

  • In a bowl mix together shredded coconut, baking powder, lavender and flour
  • mix in the oil  and sugar until well blended
  • mix in eggs
  • grab  a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball, press down onto baking sheet
  • bake at 275 for 15 minutes
