Lavender Shortbread Cookies

Give your cookies a hint of whimsy by adding lavender to the mix.


  • 2 cups softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup dried lavender buds

Cream sugar, butter and vanilla together in large mixing bowl. Add flour and lavender buds. Mix into a dough ball. Place dough ball on lightly floured surface and roll out until about 1/2 inch thick. Use a round cookie cutter to cut out cookies.  Place on ungreased baking sheet. Top with generous amount of Lavender Sugar (see recipe in May/June 2010 Hobby Farm Home). Bake at 375 degrees F for 15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.

Top with Lavender Icing, if desired.
