Posted on June 04, 2016 by Anne Milneck | 3 comments

This cooking is a surefire way to brighten a rainy summer day--or any day! Lovely Lavender Buds and Lavender Sugar come together to scent these perfectly crisp, buttery shortbread cookies. Delicious with a cup of our Lemon Lavender Tea.


1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened to room temp

1 cup flour

1 tsp Lemon Zest

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 tsp Lavender Salt

1 tsp Lavender Buds, chopped

1 ounce Lavender Sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the sugar, lemon zest, salt and butter together until light and well incorporated. Add the Lavender Buds and Flour and mix until a dough forms. Form the dough into a log and place in the freezer for at least an hour. Slice into 12 rounds. Dredge each round in the Lavender Sugar. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned around the edges.

These are the best cookies and so easy to make. I’m sharing them with my Beta Sigma Phi sisters at a City Council Cookie Swap…..I know they will be a hit! Thanks for your help today. Nikki

These cookies sound awesome but there is no lemon ingredient, it seems it would be lemon zest but not sure? Or were they meant to eat with the Lemon Lavender Tea?
