Ingredients for Lemon Lavender Cookies

Ingredients for the lemon lavender cookies:

  • Unsalted butter. I always make sure to use unsalted butter when baking because there is no “standard” for the amount of salt they can add to butter. So if you add salt to a recipe and then use salted butter you could end up with a very salty end product.
  • Granulated sugar. This will sweeten the cookie dough and make it chewier.
  • Eggs. It will be easier to incorporate the eggs into the batter if they are room temperature.
  • Vanilla extract. Vanilla is a must in baked goods just like salt. Real vanilla adds a better flavor than imitation vanilla.
  • Lemon Juice. This will add flavor to the lemon lavender cookies.
  • Lemon Zest. This will also add flavor to the cookies.
  • All-purpose flour. Measuring the flour correctly is very important. I suggest weighing your flour out (I use this scale). If you want to use a measuring cup, make sure you spoon the flour into the cup and level it off with a knife. Don’t use the cup to scoop directly from the flour.
  • Baking soda. This will help the cookies rise.
  • Baking powder. This also helps the cookies rise.
  • Salt. Salt is a must in baked goods. It will help to balance out the sweetness and improve the overall flavor.
  • Dried Lavender. This is the lavender I used.

Ingredients for lemon glaze:

  • Powdered Sugar. This will sweeten the glaze and hold it together.
  • Lemon Juice. This will flavor the glaze.
  • Heavy Cream. This will bring the lemon glaze together and make it creamy.

STEP 7: Scoop about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of lemon lavender cookie dough. Place on the prepared baking sheet about 3 inches apart.

STEP 8: Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely on the cookie sheet.

Lemon Glaze

STEP 1: In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients. Whisk until free of lumps.

STEP 2: The glaze should be pretty thin and runny. So if it is too thick you can add more milk to thin it out.
