Oh hello, happy Monday!
Sigh, Mondays after holiday weekends always seem extra long. Have no fear though, today I give you Lemon Lavender Cookies. They are soft and sweet, but with a kick of lemon and hint of fresh lavender. They are the perfect summer cookie in my opinion. The light and fresh flavors will get your Monday off to a great start.
I have been dying to use fresh lavender all summer! I finally found some at Central Market last week and decided cookies were the perfect things to make first. I was so proud of myself too, because this is the first time I used my very own baking recipe! Now I have been baking more, and learning about flour to sugar ratios, I felt comfortable enough to venture out on my own.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
1 teaspoon of fresh lemon zest
1 teaspoon of fresh minced lavender
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place dough balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes at 350 degrees. Edges should just barely be golden.
