Lavender Shortbread Cookies


  • 1 cup softened butter

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 cups different flours (1 cup all-purpose and 1 cup cake flour)

  • 1 tbs chopped fresh lavender


In a stand mixer, cream the butter, granulated sugar, powdered sugar, and salt until thoroughly combined, (~3 min). In another bowl, sift together the all-purpose and cake flours. Slowly mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just combined. Mix in chopped lavender. Roll the dough to a 1/2-inch-thick. Wrap rolled dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for ~4 hours. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cut dough into desired shapes and place on parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake cookies until golden at the edges, (~20 mins). Remove from the oven and sprinkle with granulated sugar while still warm. Let cool completely. Enjoy and feel good!
