So, I tried lavender cookies. I get excited when I see a new cookie recipe that calls for neat ingredients. If I'd looked more closely, I'd have noticed that it was simply a shortbread recipe with lavender added. Still, it tastes *d i v i n e*.
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup sugar
1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 T dried lavender or 2 T fresh lavender
Cream the butter and sugar. Add in the lavender and flour. Press mixture into a springform pan (mine was 9"). Bake at 300 F for 40 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes and cut into wedges. Yum.
I wish I'd had lavender lemonade to go with it...
