I'm REALLY into cooking with lavender right now! The mood struck one day and I have been creating everything from lavender coconut cake to lavender mint water. I even made lavender lamb chops. YUMMM!
Anyway, today I wanted to share a tasty little recipe for lavender-lemon cookie bites. These are a little bit like what I would assume would be served at an afternoon tea party. They are crispy yet spongy, thin, and darn addicting! Don't say I didn't warn you!
Lemon Lavender Cookies
Yield 24 cookies
These are a little bit like what I would assume would be served at an afternoon tea party. They are crispy yet spongy, thin, and darn addicting! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
