Lavender-Lemon Shortbread Cookies

Updated: May 12, 2020


1/2 cup of all-purpose flour

a pinch of salt

1/4 cup of white sugar

1 heaping tsp of dried lavender

1 tsp of grated lemon zest

1/4 cup of butter

optional- 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract

1.) In a mortar combine sugar, lavender and lemon zest and crush until very fine. If you don't have a mortar and pestle i like to use a sturdy bowl and the back of a wooden spoon.

2.) In a bowl combine the flour and salt and your sugar mixture and add vanilla if you want.

3.) Add in your softened butter and mix by hand until it forms a dough texture, then place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

4.) Preheat your oven to 325 degrees

5.) Roll out your dough to be about a quarter of an inch thick and cut with a cookie cutter or glass cup. Mine were about two inches across and yielded nine cookies.

6.) Bake for 12-14 minutes and let cool completely for a crunchy spring snack.
