Lavender Cookies

Updated on December 26, 2011

Lavender Cookies

These delicate flavored Lavender cookies are sweet, floral, and light and feathery. The lavender is not overpowering, it's a delicate flavor, which makes it the perfect cookie to serve with tea, at baby showers and bridal luncheons, and for the holidays. These lavender cookies are very easy to make. The recipe only requires some basic baking ingredients and a tablespoon of dried culinary lavender. These cookies look beautiful when displayed on a plate garnished with lavender.

      I am out of this. I like to try and to experiment, but this is not for me. Recently I tried flowers of a marrow filled with minced meat, what is a kind of traditional food in Cyprus, and I needed 3 double vodka to get rid of the flower taste afterwards. I love the smell of lavender, but prefer it in the fabric softener though.

      I used to make and sell Lavender Cookies at the farmers market. I think they're delicious, but Lavender is still an acquired taste for many people. Fine lens! Lensrolled to my Lavender Recipes page.

      Lavender Cookies they sound so dainty. I gave my mother a teapot that looks like a table set for tea. The colour is lavender and white, they would fit right in. Thanks for the lens.
