    EASY - DELICTLY DELICIOUS I used Lavender flowers from Sequim Washington where Lavender is grown in Fragrant Fields. These cookies fill your kitchen with the scent of a wonderful treat coming your way in 10 minutes. A Must Bake!

    Absolutely wonderful!! These cookies taste amazing. They were so easy to make! A wonderful cook at our church had brought in Lavender cookies and I was so impressed. (of course she used lavender out of her herb garden) I purchased my lavender and they were wonderful!! thanks for sharing

    Delightful, and dainty. Of course what else would you expect for a lavender cookie. This certainly isn't something you'd pack away in school lunches, but for tea with the ladies, or a bridal shower... you can't go wrong. The taste of the lavender is very subtle, but there, and quite pleasant. I did end up with 44 cookies, so I'm wondering if the directions should have stated tablespoon full instead of teaspoons. Not that it mattered. I like the teaspoon size. These should be small, in order to be dainty. It wasn't until after I'd put the camera away I thought they might look nicer dusted with icing sugar. But then you wouldn't see the lavender. Thanks chocolatecup for a lovely recipe. So fitting for special occasions. I think I'll have them with tea before bed. :) Made for Spring PAC 2009
