lemon-coconut meltaways

i love all things lemon, don't you?

well, you should :-)

anyway, i also love simple recipes and cookies, so this little gem is a win-win...and it's grain-free, too :-)

we don't use a lot of butter around here, but when we indulge in it, we use a grass-fed variety, like Kerrygold and that's what i used in these lemon cookies.

for a dairy free version, use coconut oil.

for 12 tiny cookies, you'll need:

6 T coconut flour
4 T grass-fed butter, ghee, or coconut oil, cold
1 T raw honey
2 T coconut sugar
2 pinches sea salt
zest of one lemon
juice from one lemon
coconut sugar for dusting

mix everything together in food processor. drop by rounded teaspoons onto parchment lined pans. press lightly with the bottom of a flat glass and dust with sugar. bake at 365 degrees for approx. 9 minutes. do not overbake. let cool a minute or two and just try not to eat every single one of them in one sitting! (notice there are only 9 left on my rack?)
