Lemon & Lavender Cookies


I found an interesting recipe one day in a blog call Happy Home Baking, it's call lemon & lavender cookies. I thought it's quite easy to make so I tried it last night. 

The recipe:
Ingredients:
7 ounces (14 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 egg yolk
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon dried lavender
zest from one lemon
1.5 cups & 1.5 tablespoons plain flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
Method:



  1. Sift flour and cornstarch, set aside.
  2. With an electric mixer, beat butter on medium speed until smooth, add icing sugar and beat until well blended.
  3. Beat in the egg yolk, followed by salt, dried lavender and lemon zest.
  4. Add the flour mixture and blend with a spatula. Mix just until flour is incorporated.
  5. Gather dough to form a ball, divide in half and wrap each piece in plastic wrap. Chill dough for 30 minutes in refrigerator.
  6. Form each piece of dough into a log that is about 1 to 1 1/4" in diameter. Wrap logs in plastic wrap and chill dough for at least 2 hours in refrigerator or leave overnite. (Dough logs can be wrapped airtight and kept refrigerated for up to 3 days or stored in freezer for up to 1 month.)
  7. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 170 degC. Once the oven is ready, slice the log into 1/4" thick and place on a lined baking sheet with 1/2" interval.
  8. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are set but not brown. Transfer to wire rack and let cool completely.

I let my sis try the cookies after it was cooled down, she said it tasted nice but just need some time to accept the Lavender taste, as most of the time we use Lavender as potpourri or in our shower gel or hand wash. I find it quite refreshing, with a tinge of lemon zest taste.  
 
Happy baking!
