Lemon Lavender Cookies
July 3, 2012

4 oz (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 1/4 cup flour 
1 tablespoon lavender flowers
zest from 1 lemon



Brighten up the classic sugar cookie with lemon zest and lavender flowers. These cookies are easy to make and travel well for the summer picnic dessert. If you have space in your cooler, bring vanilla ice cream. A scoop sandwiched between two of these cookies is pure heaven.

Yield: 14 cookies 

Cream together butter and sugar until white and fluffy. Beat in egg and lemon zest. Stir lavender flowers into flour. Add to butter mixture.  Shape into a log and roll up with plastic wrap. Chill for at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove dough from refrigerator and slice into coins. Bake on parchment paper for 15-18 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
