Lavender White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies



I made this recipe with Mother’s Day coming up.

It reminds me of when I would draw my Mom a picture or a gorgeous piece of macaroni art to show my appreciation.

But since I’m older now, I decided to ditch the macaroni art and make something that would delight her eyes and her taste buds.

I’m so excited because these cookies came out sooooo good and sooooo beautiful and thankfully they were super easy.

Edible Flower Lavender Shortbread

This recipe involves Shortbread dough, my floral cookie cutter, Lavender essential oil, powdered sugar, white chocolate martini mix and edible flowers.

For the Shortbread cookie dough:

1 cup butter

1/2 cup sugar

2 1/2 cups flour

Roll it out (I rolled mine very thin)

I love using this rolling pin, cover and cloth handed down from my Mom

I also have these 50 year old cookie cutters, loveee!

Bake for 14 minutes at 350 degrees.

Let them cool.

Now its time for the yummy icing BUT before you do we are going to infuse the cooled-cookie with a drop of Lavender oil.  There are so many things to do with this oil and adding it to food makes it a really special treat.

Here’s the Lavender oil that I recommend and use:

Then grab your beautiful flowers.

Not all essential oils are edible. Due to lack of purity, 98% of essential oils sold should NOT be ingested. An edible essential oil will be labeled “therapeutic-grade” and have a “Supplement Facts” box on the label showing the nutritional value – do NOT use just any brand of essential oil for cooking/flavoring foods. Be sure to use pure oils from reliable sources, not synthetic scents or flavorings.

 

 P.S.  I’m a chocolatier and you can become one too
