Everyone loves this recipe! Tender, buttery, and fragrant, perfect with a hot cup of tea.
It is important to use culinary lavender because any others may be treated with chemical scents or pesticides. I found some at the Fresh Market for less than $2.

Now *this* recipe intrigued me! I had never cooked with lavender before and wondered how such a small amount of it could really flavor a dish.  Boy, was I surprised!  The aroma while these were baking was so pleasant and relaxing... almost as much so as enjoying the cookies themselves.
