The Lavender Farmette's Lavender cookies

(Biscuits sablés à la Lavande)

I concocted this delicious recipe during my summer vacation. I wanted a small batch of cookies (these are quite rich…) that could keep for a few days in a tin so I wouldn’t eat the whole thing at one sitting. Try using organic ingredients in the following recipe and enjoy!

Makes about 20 cookies

1-Tbsp dried lavender ‘Provence’ (double if using fresh flowers)

1 egg

¾ cup flour

7-Tbsp lightly salted butter (or add a pinch of salt)

¼ cup sugar

2-Tbsp almond flour

Chop the lavender into small pieces by pulsing it with the sugar in a food processor.

Add all the other ingredients and pulse until the dough makes a ball.

Wrap the dough in plastic film and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured surface.

Cut about 20 cookies with a 2-inch wide cookie cutter.

Bake at 350F for about 12 minutes.

 

A note of caution: Look for lavender grown following organic methods. Do not ingest lavender that came from a garden center, florist, nursery or craft store that could have been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides.
