Honey Lavender Cookies

To celebrate my twiggy lavender plant surviving another winter…I decided to make cookies!   Lavender happens to be one of my very favorite things.  I dry my laundry with lavender sachets, I wash my hands with lavender soap, I even put lavender drops on my pillow before I go to bed at night.  Obsessed?  Probably.

You can even find a few sprigs of lavender on top of my microwave, along with photos of my 2 grandmothers and my recipe book.

Aside from practically bathing myself in lavender, I also love to cook and bake with it.  It’s fabulous combined with other herbs, mixed with a little butter, and smothered all over a roasted chicken.  It’s equally delicious added to strawberry jam (see recipe here).  Lavender is one of those herbs that can easily teeter the boundary of being both savory and sweet.

I haven’t really baked anything lately, so I figured it was probably about time I did.  I wasn’t in the mood for cake, a pie seemed like too much work, but cookies sounded perfect!  Because Piyush had taken the car today for work (and my vehicle is still at my Dad’s shop), I was stuck at home.  That meant I had to make due with what I had.  …and what I had made some pretty awesome cookies, if I do say so myself.
