Lime and Lavender Cookies

For this recipe you will need:

  • 12 tablespoons butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of lavender
  • 1 tablespoon of grated lime zest
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 2-1/4 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour

To prepare this recipe:

In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in the lavender and lime zest. Add egg, vanilla and mix until everything is well combined. With your mixer, gradually add the flour until it is well combined. Put the dough together and wrap it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.

Roll out dough about 1/4 inch thick, cut into shapes, and bake in pre-heated 350 F oven until the cookies just begin to brown around the edges, about 12-14 min
