RECIPES:

First, here is a lavender cookie recipe. I'm obsessed with this one I cook this at least twice a week.

vegetarian

i n g r e d i e n t s :

1 1/2 tsp - lavender
1 tsp - lemon
1 cup - all-purpose flour
1 - cane sugar, pure
1/3 cup - granulated sugar
1/4 tsp - salt
1/2 tsp - vanilla extract
1/2 cup - butter

i n s t r u c t i o n s :

In a small bowl, sift together flour and salt. Set aside.
Place 1 tsp. of the granulated sugar, lavender, and lemon zest in a mortar and grind lightly with the pestle.
Place lavender mixture in large bowl with remaining sugar and butter. Cream together until smooth. Add vanilla. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture until it forms a dough. Shape into a disk and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into shapes (I used a 1 3/4 inch cutter) and place on prepared sheet. Sprinkle with some pure cane sugar, then place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Bake cookies for 12-14 minutes until lightly browned around the edges. Cool on sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack. Can be store in an airtight container for 5 days.

Secondly, my other favourite is the limonade. It's literally the most basic one. You just make a normale limonade and add lavender to it. If I want to make it more exquisite I add mint or balm.

An other favourite of mine - though I only tried it once - is the lavender cheesecake. It doesn't only tastes good, but has a really soft and cute vibe.

I won't write it down here, but I'll link it. This is the recipe I used and I absolutely loved it!!
