Finally, the flowers are blooming again! My favorite flower is lavender. They smell and taste so good, which is why I wanted to make cookies with them. These cookies are delicious and you can taste the lavender really well. They are also pretty easy to make. It is best to make these cookies with fresh lavender buds, because fresh lavender has more flavor. However, they are also delicious with dried lavender.
Makes 18-20 cookies
Action time: 15 minutes + 30 minutes cooling time + 10-13 minutes baking time
1/3 cup / 75 g sugar
1 tbsp (fresh) lavender buds
1 stick / 115 g cold butter, diced
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup / 165 g flour
Extra: food processor, baking sheet, parchment paper
1. In a food processor, grind the sugar with the lavender buds until the buds are crushed.
2. Add the butter, vanilla, flour, and a pinch of salt and pulse several times until the dough comes together. On a work space, shape the dough into a sausage with a diameter of about 2″ / 5 cm. Let the dough rest in the fridge for about 30 min.
3. Preheat the oven to 350*F / 175*C. Cut the dough into slices of about 1/5″ / 0.5 cm. Put the slices on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake for 10-13 min. or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
