Awhile back I made some delicious lemon lavender cookies for a summertime girls night in. My girlfriends loved them so much, I thought it would be fun to perfect the recipe even more and share it with you all! This batch was enjoyed while picnicking on Johnson Farm on Bainbridge Island. And man, are they good! Even better yet, they are super simple!
If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m all about simple recipes. Especially as a new mom, I need my baking projects to be straightforward and no frills. This recipe is just that. It does involve some chill time, so it is not an immediate rewards kind of recipe, but it is worth the wait.
The lavender and lemon are a light, refreshing combination. I hope you have a chance to try these out in our last few days of summer! Let me know if you try these at home! Enjoy!
½ cup powdered sugar
2 tsp dried lavender
Zest of one lemon
1 cup butter (softened)
2 ¼ cup flour
¼ tsp salt
In a food processor, pulse powdered sugar, lavender and lemon until well incorporated. Add butter and cream until light in color. Add flour and salt until combined. Remove dough and roll into an 8 inch log. Wrap in parchment paper and chill for 4 hours, but preferably overnight. When ready to bake preheat oven to 350F. Grease baking sheet. Slice dough into ¼ inch slices and bake for 13-15 minutes.
