      "Lovely" is just the right description for these easy, delicious cookies! I used salted butter because it's what I had, and dried my tsp of mint (I had peppermint, rather than spearmint, in the garden) in the oven for 10 minutes or so - perfectly dried and crumbled easily. Definitely do follow the instructions and slice it up before it cools and hardens! Cleanup was a breeze, and I had to threaten my DH severely to keep him from GOBBLING them like they were some sort of plebian chocolate chip cookie or something!! (grin) This is a cookie to savor with a great cup of tea! Or two... or three...

      I've wanted to try this unusual shortbread for a while. It was so unique. I didn't use the mint, but might next time. The cookies we're rich and crumbly and even better the next day. I drizzled them with white chocolate, but they didn't need it.

      I love lavender, so I loved these. They are a lovely unusual treat. I particularly liked this recipe because you can use dried mint and lavender which is handy for those who don't have a kitchen garden! Very easy to make. Lining the pan with foil allows for extremely easy cleanup. These are great with tea or coffee.
