Lavender Sugar Cookies Recipe

I’m really excited to share this recipe. I’m kind of obsessed with lavender, and these cookies are a huge hit anytime I serve them.


Ingredients


Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350º F. Line 2-3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Stir flour, sugar, and baking powder in a bowl until mixed thoroughly.
  3. Stir butter and egg into flour mixture until smooth.
  4. Add vanilla extract and lavender; gently mix until thoroughly combined.
  5. Use your hands to form it into a ball. Then roll the dough out onto a flat surface until 1/4″ thick.
  6. Use a small circular cookie cutter, or shot-glass to punch out little circles.
  7. Place your cut-outs about 2″ apart onto the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake until the edges turn lightly golden, 10 to 15 minutes.

Notes

Instead of rolling the dough out and using a cookie cutter. You can just spoon them onto the cookie sheet in typical cookie-blobs. But the end result is much prettier if you roll them out. Plus when you use a shot-glass as the cookie cutter, you end up with these great little bite-sized “cookie buttons”.
