Lavender Shortbread

6.3.16

I’m raising my pinkie to tea time! Yesterday’s post included a subtle yet flavorful Earl Grey Tea pudding.  And what could compliment an afternoon pudding better than a lavender shortbread cookie? I love easy recipes that have a big payoff.  And this is one of them.  Shortbread cookies have one of the most basic cookie recipes, but adding your flavor preference to them packs the punch. The floral aroma of lavender is not only great for the sunshine of summer, but when it’s High Tea Hour, these delicate cookies look and taste practically perfect in every way. Not to mention lavender sounds fancy as a flavor, even though you can buy it in the baking section almost anywhere. So let’s get fancy and make these cookies! I figured you’d let go of the mug cake this week since I’m giving you three epic posts.

I am BACK from my incredible trip to Mexico!  This past week has been heaven, seriously paradise and I will be going through all the pictures (by phone and by fancy camera) to share some of the best moments, and prove that buying a whole new set of clothes for the trip was totally worth it. But since that’ll take the better part of the weekend, I’ll share these cookies I made right before I left, dreaming of the ocean and palm trees.  And these shortbread cookies basically got me there, tart and tangy and bright.  The buttery texture (and the fact they take no time at all) really make you feel like you’re on a vacation.
