Salted Citrus Cookies

I often get asked what to do with the leftover yolks from making Killer Vanilla Ice cream. This is your new go to recipe. Add as many citrus essential oils as you have. I LOVE the tangerine one right now. YUM. To replace the oils if you are out, use the freshly grated zest (very fine) from all and any ripe citrus fruit you have on hand. You cannot have too much zest!

Then the salt flakes....please don't replace these with normal salt. It won't work! Just lash out and get yourself a salt treat! You will wonder why you didn't try it sooner!


Wild Orange Oil: is known to relieve depression, prevents infection, is a calmative, and tastes amazing!

Lemon Oil: Known to relieve stress, helps boost the immune system, and is a natural antibacterial. It is also useful in the treatment of asthma.
