These vegan Rose Petal Window Cookies are a delight to have for the spring and summer. They require 8 ingredients only and are made gluten-free!
There was a single rose plant in our garden that blooms every year during the summer. We never planted it and don’t water it at all, but still a single rose grows every year. I would watch butterflies come and go near it during the summer.
I never understood how the rose can survive and grow every year despite the fact that we hardly watered it. I would say rose is my favorite flower as it seems like it is the majority’s favorite flower, but I was fascinated by the thorns from their stems. I would play around with it, careful not to prick myself. There was something so special about the rose blooming on it’s own without the help of anyone but nature itself.
It shows how strong and resilient you can be despite the obstacles facing you. No matter what happens, you have the strength to continue on.
I was thinking about the rose in my garden recently and realized I had some rose petals in my kitchen that I haven’t used yet. I decided to make these Rose Petal Window Cookies with them highlighting spring and summer together.
The “window” as you can see is made of isomalt crystals which is a form of sugar from beets that bakers tend to use for sugar art cake decorations. I ordered mine online through Amazon but you can also use hard sugar candy like Jolly Ranchers as a substitute.
The cookies itself is a recipe for regular vegan shortbread cookies. They are not overly sweet and are made gluten-free with a combination of 1:1 gluten-free flour and almond flour.
