A Lavender Cookie Recipe

A Lavender Cookie Recipe

Ingredients

3 1/2 T. dried lavender
1 C. butter
3 eggs, beaten
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
2 C. sugar
1/2 C. milk
3 1/2 C. flour

*Please see notes first.*
Grind Lavender (I usually dry mine for a few weeks first) and sugar in the food processor. Cream butter, add sugar/lavender mixture and mix well. Add beaten eggs and vanilla. Into one cup of flour sift baking soda and baking powder. Add this to the sugar mixture…

Alternate remaining flour with milk to this mixture in order to make soft dough (tip: always start and end with the dry ingredient). Drop by teaspoons onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes or until golden color. Makes 24-36 cookies. Let cool for a minute or two on the cookie sheet and then remove to a cooling rack.

* NOTES* If you don’t grow your own Chem. free lavender, DO NOT BUY LAVENDER THAT IS USED FOR CRAFTS TO AVOID POISONS I’ve been making these for years. You can serve these on their own or with Lavender ice cream. 24-36 Cookies
