  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Arrowroot Flour
  • 2 Tablespoons Rose Buds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Powder or Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Date or Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Almond Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Rosewater
  • 1/3 Cup Vegan Butter I used Miyoko's Kitchen
Cardamom Rose Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Date Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cardamom
  • 1 Teaspoon Crushed Rose Buds
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Beet Powder
Special Equipment
  • Food Processor
  • Sheet Pan
  • Parchment Paper or Silpat
  • Flat Bottomed Glass
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silpat.

Make the Cardamom Rose Sugar
  1. Place all the ingredients for the cardamom rose sugar in a bowl and mix well.  Set aside. 

Make the Cookie Batter
  1. In the food processor place the flours, salt, baking powder and rose buds. Process until fully incorporated.

  2. Add in the egg, sugar, almond milk, vanilla, rose water and vegan butter. Process until the dough starts to look moist and clump together. When you pinch the dough in between your fingers it should hold. If the dough is still crumbling add more almond milk a teaspoon at a time.

  3. Using a mini ice cream scoop (approximately 2 teaspoons), portion out the cookie dough on a sheet pan covered with parchment or silpat.

  4. Roll into balls and dip and roll in the cardamom rose sugar.  Place back on the sheet pan and repeat with all the balls.  Once all the cookie dough has been rolled in the sugar, using a flat bottomed glass press it down on each cookie to flatten it. 

Bake the Cookie
  1. Bake for 12 minutes and cool slightly on the baking tray.

  1. While the cookies are cooling down you can sprinkle more of the sugar on top if you wish.  Serve right away or store in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
