I love baking with unusual flavours and trying out my own versions of classic recipes. One flavour that I really enjoy using is lavender and this shortbread is the perfect way too add a floral twist to your baking.
You will need:
60g caster sugar
220g plain flour
2 tbsp culinary lavender
How to make:
Preheat oven to 170ºc and prepare a large baking tray.
Cream the butter and sugar together with the lavender and rub in the four until it forms a stiff dough.
Roll out on a floured surface to about ¼” thickness.
Cut out using a cookie cutter and prick with a fork several times.
Bake for around 15 minutes until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
These are really tasty and the recipe also works really well with other flavours such as tea. I used the same recipe to make my Earl Grey shortbread. If you want to try another floral recipe why not try my rosewater cake recipe. For lots more recipes, check out the Baking section of the blog.
As always, let me know if you try this recipe. I always love to see pictures of your baking!
