So I wanted to try baking with flowers. This is something new for me. Well, I do not count making fudge with them, but that is more tried and true. So I am adding them in to a sugar cookie mix. Add it gave a nice honey flavor to the cookies. The cookies turn out slightly nutty and butter and sweet with a nice tang.
Original recipe makes4 dozen
1 teaspoonvanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. At this time add in a handful of the marigold petals. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
