Honey Lavender Cookies

Honey Lavender Cookies

We were able to pick some beautiful lavender at Whitley Farms.

Olivia decided to try a recipe for Honey Lavender Cookies.  They were pretty cookies and had a delicious hint of lavender.

 

Honey Lavender Cookies

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup + t tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons diced lavender buds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • lavender colored sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, beat together honey, sugar and butter.  Add the egg yolk and beat well.  In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, lavender, and salt; blend into the egg mixture. Add the vanilla and mix well.  Chill the dough for one hour.  Shape into 18 balls and sprinkle with colored sugar.  Bake for 10-12 minutes or until done.

If you can’t pick fresh lavender, you can find dried lavender buds in the spice section of Whole Foods.
