Layers of Lavender

The ‘trick’ to these cookies is the layering of lavender flavor throughout. While one could probably just toss some lavender buds into the dough and get flavorful results, the flavor is more intense with some light infusing.

Homemade Lavender Ingredients

If you happen to have some homemade lavender infused honey and/or lavender infused sugar. This is a great place to use those homemade pantry items.

Use lavender infused honey and skip the infusing of the lavender buds in plain honey called for in the recipe.

Substitute lavender infused sugar for the plain sugar.

Additionally, add only 1 teaspoon of lavender buds to the creaming of the sugar, instead of the whole Tablespoon of lavender buds called for in the recipe.

Amazing Gift Idea

While these are a soft cookie, they ship incredibly well. So, don’t be afraid to tuck them into care packages and mail them off to loved ones far away.

Options for Decorating

These are simple and soft cookie, perfect from the oven. However, there are some ways to ‘fancy’ them up if desired.

Frost the cookies with a simple chocolate or vanilla frosting. Or sandwich the cookies around the frosting.

Drizzle the cooled cookies with melted dark chocolate.

Dip half the cookie in melted white chocolate.

Because these cookies do freeze well, using these for ice cream sandwiches would be quite delightful.
