1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, lemon zest, dried roses, if using, and vanilla until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the flour and beat until combined, and the dough forms a ball.
Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of lightly floured parchment to 1/4 inch thickness. Make sure you’re using enough flour or your dough will stick. Cut out the cookies using a heart-shaped cookie cutter or your favorite shape. Carefully transfer the cookies to a parchment lined baking sheet. Cover the baking sheet with plastic wrap and place in the freezer, freeze until firm, about 10-20 minutes. Roll out the leftover scraps, and repeat with the dough.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake the cookies on the middle rack of the oven for 12-14 minutes or until just lightly golden. Cool on the baking sheet 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
To make the glaze. In a medium bowl, beat together the powdered sugar, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon water until smooth and drizzly. If needed, thin the glaze by adding water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until drizzly. Stir 1-2 drops blood orange juice if a pink color is desired.
Dip the tops of cookies into the glaze, letting the excess drip off. Transfer to a wire rack and decorate as desired with fresh roses. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days

, ripe bananas
Optional Add-in Ingredients:
peanut flour or any nut butter
(I use semi-sweet,dark or miniature)
(adjust to your taste preference)
Nutella or any hazelnut spread
peanut butter chips
crushed nuts of choice
(pecans, peanuts, almonds, walnuts, etc)
(think cranberries, raisins, sultanas, chopped dates)
pure vanilla extract
(adjust to your taste preferences)
**Measurements are based on what I have tried with these cookies in the past. Feel free to add more/less to your preference
Preheat oven to 175°C | 350°F.
Mash bananas in a shallow bowl. Add in the oats and mix well to combine. Fold in any optional add-ins you like (I added 4 level tablespoons of peanut flour, 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 2 teaspoons of honey into these).
Line baking tray/sheet with baking/parchment paper and drop one tablespoon of cookie dough per cookie onto tray. Press down with the back of a metal spoon and shape into cookies (these will not spread into shape like normal cookies). Bake for 15-20 minutes depending on your oven, or until cookies are lightly golden on top and just set to the touch. (Keep an eye on them after 10 minutes, as they can bake faster depending on how hot your oven is before baking.)
Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack.
*Quick oats give the best results, however you CAN use rolled oats. Use Gluten Free Oats for gluten free cookies. **Storage: Store cookies in an airtight container for two-three days, or freeze the batch and reheat when needed.
