lavender and orange


little delights should be a part of everyone's day.  whether sneaking of a bite of chocolate or a kiss from your kids as they go off to school, i think we can all agree that the more smiles on your face per day really make it better.  we would like to think that these cookies fall into that little bit of goodness to brighten your day category.  light and flaky, subtle but addicting, we think these cookies are the perfect part of any coffee break in your downtime. but be careful, this subtle delight can turn into major delight if you keep the whole bag of cookies within reach.

lavender & orange shortbread
makes 22 cookies

1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp fresh lavender
1/2 tsp orange zest
1 stick butter, softened
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
in the bowl of an electric mixer w/ the paddle attachment, cream the butter and the sugar.  add flour, salt, lavender and orange zest.  mix until this forms a ball.  put in fridge for 20 minutes. preheat oven to 350 degrees. between two pieces of parchment paper, roll out dough until a thickness of a 1/4 inch thick.  place dough on a sheet pan and back in fridge for 20 more minutes.  with a 2" round cookie cuter, cut round cookies and place on an ungreased sheet pan.  when all cookies are cut out, use remaining scraps of dough to form new ball and return to fridge for 20 minutes, roll out and repeat.  place cookies in oven for 18-20 minutes or until slightly browned.  transfer to wire rack and let cool.

I love this post. "Little delights" throughout the day are definitely a must.

I have a bundle of Eatwell Farm lavender hanging from my utensil rack...it just found its calling.

Thank you for the inspiration!
