These are really good.
They’ve got a lovely hint of lavender that will rock your socks but not overwhelm your senses. The green dye is not necessary, I just thought this would make a cute St. Paddy’s Day treat!
Here’s what you need:
1 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup Lavender Flower Sugar
3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and set to the side. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix well. Slowly add in the flour mix. Mix until completely combined.
Split the dough in half and roll out to desired thickness. I placed both sheets of dough onto a baking sheet layered with parchment paper and then placed them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Take one sheet of dough out at a time and cut into desired shapes. When you only have awkward pieces left, don’t just eat it, roll that extra dough out again to desired thickness and rotate it out with the sheet waiting in the refrigerator.
Place cookies on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges begin to brown slightly.
These cookies will last several days in an airtight container.
