A delicious, light, experimental recipe I created. These are a good spring or summer cookie. For the lavender-vanilla sugar, I used --Rita--'s awesome recipe. (

Member's raved about this cookie for Spring PAC so I felt compelled to make this, since I adore baking with lavender so much. I agree with all three reviewers: a stellar little biscuit that is light-as-a-feather and delicately flavoured with both lemon and lavender. Also used the aforementioned Lavender/Vanilla Sugar; I love that they are not dense or overly sweet. I'm making a second batch, immediately, as a Thank You gift for a dear friend. :)
