Lemon and Lavender Sugar Cookies

This Lemon and Lavender Sugar Cookie recipe is my latest obsession. Not only is it easy to make, but completely delicious. It even smells amazing with the lavender herbs. The Meyer Lemons are my favorite and seem to have the most powerful flavor and scent. They are also a rich deep yellow color. How could you not love them?

Lemon and Lavender are often used together in European cooking from Italy or France. I have seen recipes for ice cream, cakes, roast chicken and more. My family was anxious to try these new cookies and they have become one of our new favorites.

Lavender Sources

This recipe calls for a bit of dried fresh lavender. You can find this edible herb at specialty herb or gourmet shops. Amazon also carries it stock. If you have it growing in your garden you can use that instead, as long as it’s organically grown without pesticide.
