These doTERRA meltaway cookies really do melt in your mouth, and I love that the essential oils in them not only make them taste good, but they are healthy too. These are perfect to serve at doTERRA parties too.
Note on how many drops – I experimented with several different drop amounts and different oils. The amount of oils you use will vary greatly depending on the essential oil and how strong of a flavor you want. For peppermint essential oil, 8 drops in the cookies and 4 drops in the frosting is plenty for most people. The other oils aren’t as strong, so you need quite a bit more. When I tested with 10 drops in both the cookies and the frosting of all but peppermint, it was enough to taste the different flavors, but it was a pretty subtle difference. If you want stronger flavors, you could go up to 20 drops in both the cookies and the frosting (Luckily, these oils are relatively affordable . . .). Personally, I thought the cookies were fine with 10 drops, and then for the frosting, it’s luckily really easy to take a little taste and see if you would like more. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
Multiple flavors in one batch – This recipe is easiest if all the cookies are the same flavor. But for a small doTERRA party, you may wish to let your guests sample different flavors. This is easy to do with the frosting, because you can just put it in multiple small bowls and put a few drops of essential oils and a drop or two of food coloring in each bowl. However, it’s harder to do with the cookies themselves, because you add all the liquid and then the dry ingredients. So I would recommend you either put the water in to get it to almost the right consistency until it’s almost come together, then separate it in to multiple bowls and add the essential oils and work with it a bit until it comes to together. Or just forget the flavoring in the cookies and just flavor the frosting.
