Lavender Cookies

These lavender cookies are soft and buttery shortbread cookies filled with floral lavender and bright lemon flavor. Enjoy plain or with a sweet and tangy lemon glaze and more lavender.

Pour the sugar and dried lavender buds into a food processor. Process for 10-15 seconds. Add in the lemon zest and process until the texture of the lavender sugar resembles wet sand.

Step 1:  

Using a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment or electric hand mixer with beaters, beat the room temperature butter and lemon lavender sugar until well combined.

Step 2:  

Mix the flour and salt into the wet ingredients until just combined. Cover the dough and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 3:  

Scoop about 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet.

Step 4:  

Bake the lavender sugar cookies for 12 - 14 minutes. The bottom of the cookies will be very lightly golden brown.

Step 5:  

Make the lemon glaze for the lavender cookies by mixing 2 - 3 tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice with 1 - 1 ½ cups (120 - 180 g) of powdered sugar until well combined.

Step 6:  

Top each cookie with the lemon glaze. Sprinkle very finely chopped dried lavender on top if you like.
