makes approximately 2 dozen cookies
For the Dough
juice and rind of 1/2 orange (cut into large pieces)
unrefined cane sugar
clarified butter, melted and cooled (see
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled but still liquid
cups all-purpose flour, organic, unbleached, and unbromated
large pinch of sea salt

large lemon wedge with peel
For the dough
Using a food processor, process the orange and sugar until fine.
Add eggs, butter, coconut oil, vanilla and honey. Process until blended.
Add baking powder and 1 cup of the flour. Pulse the food processor just until flour is blended into the dough. Do not over process and be careful not to burn out your motor! The dough will be sticky.
Remove dough from bowl and place on a lightly floured board. Mix in the remaining flour to make a dough that can be rolled out. Do not handle any more than necessary, or the dough will get tough.
For the filling
Chop all ingredients and combine in food processor and blend to a mostly uniform paste. A few remaining lumps are okay.
Roll dough to about 1/4″ thick. Cut circles with a glass or cookie cutter.
Place a spoonful of filling in the center, then with your thumb and forefingers, bring the sides of the circle up to form a triangle and slightly pinching the sides together at the top.
Brush with beaten egg and bake at 350° Fahrenheit until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.
Cool on the cookie sheet for 1 minute, then remove to wire racks to cool.
